On January 13, 2018, Anwar 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.

According to Anwar, Naqeebullah had links with the banned TTP and was living in Karachi’s Sohrab Goth area using a fake name.

However, the family member Naqeebullah claim that he was an aspiring model and was killed in a fake police encounter.
