Sui­cide or mur­der

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - WAJIHA MASUD

I would like to draw your at­ten­tion to­wards the in­ci­dent that took place in Jaf­farabad; where dis­trict po­lice of­fi­cer Ja­han­zaib Khan Kakar was found dead in his of­fice un­der mys­te­ri­ous cir­cum­stances. He was laid to rest in his na­tive town in Balochis­tan the other day. Af­ter un­der­go­ing an au­topsy, Kakar’s body was handed over to the DSP Dera Al­lah Yar and PDSP Jaf­farabad. Ac­cord­ing to the post-mortem re­port, a bul­let wound, re­port­edly from Kakar’s 9-mm ser­vice weapon, was found in the of­fi­cer’s right tem­ple.

It is to be said that this was su­cide at­tempt. How­ever, Dr Kakar said the cir­cum­stan­tial ev­i­dence col­lected by po­lice sur­geons in­di­cated the of­fi­cer was killed. “Ini­tial au­topsy re­ports pre­pared by the med­i­cal of­fi­cer of the Civil Hos­pi­tal has also sup­ported the views of the po­lice sur­geon. The brother of SSP ar­gued in case of sui­cide, brain leaks out of skull im­me­di­ately. How­ever, po­lice of­fi­cials who reached scene did not find any sign of brain leak­age of the de­ceased. Fur­ther more pis­tol should have fallen to ground from his hand but it was found near his body. He had been re­ciev­ing threat­ning calls for many days af­ter ar­rest­ing two peo­ple from in­flu­en­tial fam­ily in case of child abuse, and also af­ter suc­cess­full op­er­a­tion against Khosa and Bugti tribes.

SP Ja­han­zaib Khan Kakar, who was con­sid­ered one of best po­lice of­fi­cers in Pak­istan, was also work­ing on some sen­si­tive cases, ac­cord­ing to the sources. Be­cause he was pride of Pak­istan and no one could dare to kill our pride, our per­son­nels like this.
