Wazirabad attack’s leading suspect challenges JIT

The main suspect in the purported assassination attempt on Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has disputed the findings of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) looking into the case on Thursday.

Naveed—the man accused of shooting the former premier—filed a petition with the Interior Ministry, alleging political animosity on the part of the JIT.

The application further stated that disagreements among the investigative team members were supported by official correspondence.

The JIT chief allegedly generated fraudulent, self-made evidence, false self-made witnesses, and false self-made suspects in the case. It further stated that he had met with the witnesses and suspects the JIT chief had introduced.

According to the application, civil official Anwar Shah and JIT chief Ghulam Mehmood Dogar fabricated witnesses and defendants in the case to appease Imran Khan.

The JIT chiefs made significant accusations against one another, it continued, so they turned the probe over to a civil officer. According to the petition, a civil official was not permitted by law to look into a terrorism matter.

The petition further said that the petitioner’s legal and constitutional rights were being violated by the civil official and the JIT chief.

Naveed argued that the Anti-Terrorism Act gave the federal government the right to stop any investigator from looking into a case. He asked that the government immediately stop the current JIT’s probe into the case.

The application also argued that sincere and politically impartial police officers should conduct the case investigation.
