IG Sindh urges Rao Anwar to hand himself over to police
KARACHI: Sindh Inspector General of Police (IGP) AD Khawaja urged under-fire cop Rao Anwar to face the charges against him and turn up at court, evading detention and going in hiding instead.
Talking briefly to press outside the Supreme Court on Saturday, the IGP said the police have been conducting raids to arrest the suspended cop.
Calling upon the beleaguered police officer to face the charges, Khawaja said Anwar could present his argument before the judges. “It will be in his best interest to hand himself over to police,” he added.
In response to a question with regard to court’s orders for Anwar’s arrest within three days, he said police will make all-out efforts to trace the whereabouts of Rao Anwar.
Responding to another question about speculations of Anwar fled abroad, the police chief said Supreme Court of Pakistan has directed Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to take a certificate from all private airlines whether he traveled abroad or not, adding, similar directives have been passed to the interior ministry.
