Karachi—The Inspector General of Police, Sindh Ghulam Haider Jamali has appointed Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) City, Fida Hussain Janwari as head of joint interrogation team (JIT) on notorious Lyari gangster Uzair Baloch.
Sindh Police have forwarded SSP City Fida Hussain Janwari’s name to the Sindh Home Department for final approval and issuance of a relevant notification to validate his position as head of the JIT.
The paramilitary Rangers had few weeks ago claimed to have arrested Uzair Baloch from Karachi’s periphery when he was attempting to enter Karachi from Hub in Balouchistan. His arrest remained controversial as local media had for several times reported he was arrested almost one year ago from Dubai through the Interpol.
Uzair’s arrest has become dangerous for the PPP as reports that had also appeared in local newspapers claimed that he has named many PPP high profile leaders as his patron in heinous crimes.
