Bahria Town Chairman Malik Riaz Hussain has strongly rejected rumours that former SSP Rao Anwar used one of his planes to flee the country.

On January 13, 2018, Anwar had killed an innocent Naseemullah Mehsud alias Naqeebullah along with three others in a ‘staged encounter’ with the Malir police. Since then, Anwar has been dismissed and is currently wanted by the police.

“Anwar did not flee the country in one of Bahria Town’s planes,” said Riaz in a video statement.

“Naqeebullah was just like my son,” he said. “I stand with the family of Naqeebullah in this moment of pain.”

Riaz strongly rejected the claims that Anwar was facilitated by Bahria Town in any manner.

“Bahria Town owns private planes for the past eight years, but Anwar has never travelled in any one of those planes. We have never supported and will never support those who break the law,” Riaz added.

Riaz called for a detailed inquiry regarding the extrajudicial killings by Anwar.

“My heart is with Pakistanis… Naqeebullah was like my son,” he added.
