RAWALPINDI: Father of deceased Naqeebullah Mehsud passed away on Monday at the Combined Military Hospital (CMH).

Muhammad Khan, who was suffering from cancer, was admitted to the CMH for the last six to seven months.

Khan was fighting a court battle over bringing the killers of his son to justice.

His body will be sent to Waziristan. Naqeeb was falsely killed in Karachi by the SSP Rao Anwar and his team. Afterwards, his father led a movement for trial of Anwar and his team.

“I want justice for my son,” Khan Mohammad had said earlier this year, adding that he was thankful to those who had stood united with him to seek justice for the murder of his son.

A Jirga (tribal assembly of elders) of the Mehsud tribe had camped in the metropolis’ Sohrab Goth vicinity to stand with Khan Muhammad.

Naqeebullah’s father said the entire country was saddened by the killing of his son.

“It was Naqeebullah’s wish that his son would serve in the Pakistan Army someday,” he had said.

Meanwhile, Army Chief General Qamar Bajwa expressed heartfelt grief over the death of Muhammad Khan.

“May Allah bless the soul eternal peace in the Heaven,” the COAS said in his condolence message to the family.

The COAS also said that efforts to ensure provision of justice as promised to Naqeebullah’s father will be pursued.
