ISLAMABAD: Bahria Town Chairman Malik Riaz Tuesday said that disappearance or escape of suspended SSP Malir Rao Anwar should be investigated thoroughly.

He said that never colluded with law violators, and cannot even think of it. Malik Riaz said that he always helped the needy during natural disasters and the needy in distress and sent them abroad for medical treatment.

He clarified that Rao Anwar had never used any of his planes, saying he hoped that “the culprit behind Naqeebullah Mehsud’s murder will be brought to justice”. “I have two personal aircraft for the last eight years and none of them have ever been used by Rao Anwar,” the business tycoon said.

The rumours of Anwar’s escape from the country in a Bahria Town plane are baseless and condemnable, he added. Addressing the ‘Pakhtuns of Karachi’ and the parents and relatives of the deceased while recording his video statement from London where he has been staying for a week, Malik Riaz said, “I’m as aggrieved [on Naqeebullah‘s death] as his parents.”

“I think of Naqeebullah as my own son and I stand in complete solidarity with his parents,” he added. The Bahria Town CEO went on to say that he “never supported any criminal person,” adding, “My record in this regard is clean.” While concluding, the businessman said, “The law will take its course against whoever that is responsible [for the murder] and it will not spare him.”
