WEB DESK – The latest turn in the investigations of Ch Aslam’s murder raised fingers at banned sectarian militant outfit Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ)’s operatives for being involved in the assassination.
According to the televised reports, the police in Karachi moved a step closer in arresting the murderers of its bravest soldier martyred in the line of duty as one Mufti Mohammad Shakir was being held for holding alleged connections with the assailants of Ch Aslam.
Mufti Mohammad Shakir was held from SITE area in Karachi who then told the investigators that the suicide bomber ‘Naeemuallah’ who attacked Ch Aslam’s vehicle was his close ally and disciple.
Shakir further explained during investigations that Lashkar-e-Jhangvi operator Umar had asked him to provide a suicide bomber to slay Aslam. Shakir presented himself for the attack but Umar chose young Naeemullah.
CID Police Investigation In-charge Mazhar Mashwani confirmed the arrest of Shakir but refused to share details with media when approached. “Mufti Shakir has been arrested and is in jail,” he made a brief statement.
Ch Aslam, famous CID officer, was assassinated in Karachi on January 9 earlier this year. However, primarily the outlawed militant group of Taliban claimed the responsibility of the attack.
