    As if the target killing of Syed Hammad Raza was not enough that the government has arrested this second man.

    Never before have we heard of a police officer being arrested in this manner

    The wife of former DIG police, Mirpurkhas, Saleemullah Khan on Wednesday implored journalists: “Please save my husband from extra-judicial killing.”

    Talking to The News, Mrs Khan said that her spouse had been sent to the Mirpurkhas Jail against the court orders. She said that her husband’s life was in danger in Sindh, in general, and particularly in the Mirpurkhas Jail,

    where more than a dozen police officials suspended and jailed by Khan on the Supreme Court’s orders were lodged in the same prison.

    She said that the Sessions Court before which the ex-DIG was produced on Tuesday had sent her husband to the Hyderabad Jail but the Sindh government had shifted him to Mirpurkhas.

    When produced before the Mirpurkhas Sessions Court on Tuesday, Saleemullah Khan told newsmen that he had been arrested from Islamabad by the Sindh Police on the orders of the Sindh chief minister. Khan also feared that he could be killed extra-judicially because he had followed the Supreme Court’s orders, which had annoyed the provincial chief minister.

    Khan also confirmed that he wanted to appear as a defence witness for Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry before the Supreme Judicial Council. He told newsmen that after being arrested from Islamabad, he was flown to Karachi in a special plane of the Sindh governor as if he was a most-wanted criminal.

    The lawyers’ community in Mirpurkhas has decided to support the ex-DIG for the reason that Khan had done what he had been directed by the chief justice of Pakistan.

    President of the Mirpurkhas Bar, Salahuddin Panwhar, has reportedly said that the government was deliberately victimizing the defence witnesses of Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry.

    In Islamabad, Mrs Khan is running from pillar to post to get her husband back from Sindh. She said that neither she and nor her daughter were allowed to talk to the ex-DIG. Also, none of their relatives was permitted to meet Khan in the Mirpurkhas Jail.

    Mrs Khan is a cardiac patient, while the ex-DIG’s only daughter is an A-level student. According to Mrs Khan, the arrest of her husband had disturbed her daughter at a time when she was about to take her final exams.

    The ex-DIG Mirpurkhas had invited the wrath of Sindh Chief Minister Arbab Ghulam Rahim after he probed into some high-profile cases, including the Munno Bheel case, following the suo moto action taken by the Chief Justice of Pakistan.

    In the Munno Bheel case, a feudal lord had allegedly abducted 13 members of the Munno Bheel family, who have been missing for the last nine years. Munno Bheel has been protesting for the last nine years for the recovery of his family members, but nobody helped him.

    Mrs Khan said that following directions from the chief justice, the-then DIG Mirpurkhas, Salimullah Khan, had registered an FIR against the influential feudal lord, who had directly involved the chief minister in the case.

    When the DIG decided to implement the directions of the chief justice in any case, he was suspended by the chief minister, who claimed that the DIG was about to register a criminal case against his superiors. The feudal lord is reported to have private jails and torture cells.

    Court rejects 5th plea for ex-DIG’s remand

    SANGARH: Sangarh District and Sessions Judge Kausar Sultana rejected Sangarh investigation police’s plea seeking a 15-day physical remand of the former Mirpurkhas DIG Saleemullah Khan in a kidnapping case registered against him in Khapro. This marked the Sangarh police’s fifth attempt for a physical remand of the former DIG to be rejected by a court.

    Saleemullah is a witness of the suspended chief justice of Pakistan in the reference pending before the Supreme Court. The investigators seeking his remand had also requested the court to shift Saleemullah from Mirpurkhas to Sanghar district jail.

    Legal DSP Mohammad Aslam Gill argued the police wanted to get a physical remand because Khan was not cooperating with investigators. The counsels of the accused, Salahuddin Panwar and SM Aslam, opposed the police’s plea by arguing that their client’s statement had been recorded under section 164 of the Criminal Procedure Code and he had appeared before the Khapro civil court. They urged the court to reject the police’s plea. After considering both sides’ arguments, the judge rejected the police’s request.
