Citing personal reasons, a law officer of the Sindh Rangers stepped down on Wednesday, sending his resignation letter to the provincial home department.
Ghulam Shabbir Babar, a special public prosecutor, was prominent among the law officers working for the paramilitary force, being involved in several high-profile cases including those of the suspects arrested during the March 11 raid.
Babar said that he had been associated with the paramilitary force for the past 22 months and was resigning from his post for 'personal reasons.' He dispelled the rumours that he was detaching himself from the Rangers for security reasons or any pressure, claiming that he merely wanted to continue his private practice.
A team of nine prosecutors was working as law officers for the Rangers, appearing in court on behalf of the force.
It was earlier reported that Babar had stepped down because he was not provided with security and due to delays in salary payments.
