AIG to reinvestigate arms recovery from Clifton

AIG to reinvestigate arms recovery from Clifton

KARACHI: The Sindh government has tasked Additional Inspector General (AIG) Sardar Majeed Dasti with reinvestigation into famous case of ‘recovery of huge cache of arms’ from Clifton.

According to police papers, including the FIR, arms were showed as recovered from a garbage dump on November 10 last year but according to sources these were actually recovered from the house of a businessman close to a top leader of a political party.    

Law-enforcers had recovered eight bags full of weapons from the said house including seven M4 rifles, six sub-machine guns, two 7mm rifles, two .223 rifles, four 12-bore, one G3, one 222 rifle and two 9 mm pistols, two police caps and two daggers.

Sources told The News that reinvestigation was ordered on the pressure of law-enforcement agencies. According to official correspondence, copies available with The News, initially the Home Department directed the police for re-investigation and following the orders AIG Sardar Majeed Dasti was tasked with re-investigation.

Initially, District South police were investigating the matter but despite passage of six months the investigation did not proceed due to alleged involvement of big hands. The issue has also increased differences between the top political leadership and Inspector General of Sindh Police AD Khawaja, as the top political leadership had stopped the police from disclosing the recovery of arms and registration of case, but IGP Khawaja refused to obey the orders.

This reporter tried to reach AD Khawaja and AIG Mushtaq Ahmed Mahar for their official point of view and called at their official numbers but till the filling of story in the evening there was no response.
