KARACHI: The much criticized, controversial and in-news Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Rao Anwar has been reinstated on Saturday, suspended for arresting Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Pakistan leader and leader of opposition in Sindh Izharul Hassan, a notification said.
According to the notification, Anwar has not been deputed anywhere as yet and he has been reinstated with immediate effect.
In September, Police arrested Khawaja Izharul Hasan from his residence in Karachi’s Buffer Zone area. He was handcuffed and taken away by SSP Malir Rao Anwar in an Armoured Personnel Vehicle (APV).
Television footage available with Geo News showed MQM Pakistan chairman Farooq Sattar trying to shove away policemen who dragged away Khawaja Izhar.
Later on, Rao Anwar was suspended by CM Sindh, saying that SSP’s method was wrong.
PM Nawaz had also taken notice of the incident.
