Rao Anwar was transferred after he held a press conference alleging Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) for having connections with the Indian intelligence agency RAW.
In the press briefing, SSP Rao Anwar had claimed that MQM’s Muhammad Anwar, Nadeem Nusrat and MQM chief Altaf Hussain are in contact with Indian intelligence agency Research Analysis Wing. He further said that MQM leaders Farooq Saleem and Hammad Siddiqui issue direction to activists for different criminal activities in Karachi.
Later, CM Sindh Qaim Ali Shah had taken the notice of his media talks and IG Sindh after investigating the matter transferred Rao Anwar and directed him to report CPO Office.
According to sources, the decision to reinstate Rao Anwar as SSP Malir is taken in the wake of rising terrorism in Karachi.
