QUETTA: A former police officer was shot dead in a targetted attack in Quetta on Sunday.
According to the police, former SHO of Airport Police Station Fazlur Rehman Kakar was sitting outside his car showroom on Yat Road of the city when unidentified gunmen shot him dead.
Kakar’s body was taken to the Civil Hospital from where it will be handed over to his family after medico-legal formalities.
Kakar was dismissed as the Airport SHO after the May 17, 2011 Kharotabad incident.
The incident involved the killing of five foreigners — four Russians and one Tajik — after they allegedly failed to stop at a police checkpoint.
The victims included three women, including a pregnant one.
Several high-profile inquiries were conducted into the incident to ascertain the role of the Frontier Corps and police. As a result of the judicial inquiry by Justice Hashim Khan Kakar, Quetta Capital City Police Officer Daud Junejo, FC’s Col Faisal Shehzad, SHO Kakar and ASI Raza Khan were held responsible. –Web Desk
