IGP Sindh had even written a letter to intelligence agencies for providing their assistance in nabbing Anwar apart from ordering police raids in various parts of Islamabad, Peshawar and interior Sindh.

On Saturday, Anwar failed to appear before the court where Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar was hearing the suo moto case pertaining to the death of Naqeebullah. He ordered IGP Sindh to arrest the culprit within three days.

A few days earlier, Anwar’s attempted escape to Dubai was foiled by security forces who offloaded him from the plane but failed to arrest him.

According to reports, Anwar is being supported by influential personalities who are creating a hindrance in his arrest.
