F.P. Report

RAWALPINDI: The father of Naqeebullah Mehsud passed away on Monday at the Combined Military Hospital (CMH) in Rawalpindi.

Muhammad Khan, who was suffering from cancer, was admitted in CMH for the last six to seven months. Khan was fighting a court battle over bringing the killers of his son to justice.

Body of the deceased will be sent to Waziristan. Naqeeb was falsely killed in Karachi by SSP Rao Anwar and his team. Afterwards, the father of Naqeeb had led a movement for a 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 the father of the slain man.

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.
