Peshawar, August 06, 2012 (PPI-OT): The Chief Justice of Peshawar High Court, Mr. Justice Dost Muhammad Khan has appreciated the performance of DIG (Investigation) Muhammad Idrees Khan and the members of his team in the Special Investigation Unit for discovering the true story of a triple murder case. The Chief Justice has observed that the DIG and his team “be issued commendation certificates besides cash prizes by the PPO/IGP”.

The Chief Justice made these observations in bail applications wherein one Arbab Muhammad Nasir committed the triple honour killing in the jurisdiction of Police Station Par Hoti District Mardan but by taking benefit of being from the deceaqsed family charged other innocent people. On a previous date of hearing in the said bail applications, the Chief Justice felt suspicious of the investigation conducted by a Sub Inspector Muhammad Akbar and thus directed the police authorities for afresh investigation.

Following these directives, the Special Investigation Unit headed by Muhammad Idrees Khan along with DSP Inayatullah Shah and Inspector Hasnain Agha who as the CJ observed “conducted reinvestigation and they deserve appreciation because they made concerted efforts in a fair and honest manner by laying hands on the real culprits who were the members of the complainant family and whose name are now mention in the charge-sheet”.

As per the story unearthed, the deceased lady has eloped with the co-accused due to which Arbab Muhammad Nasir “because of family honour after making consultations and deliberations with his co-accused deceitfully brought the lady from Rawalpindi to Mardan and after spending the night, she along with her two kids were taken in a car and during the transit all the three were brutally killed and their bodies were thrown in the fields which on discovery were collected and matter was reported” by the real culprit himself against the innocent persons.

The Special Investigation Unit “collected sufficient materials and also made some of the accused to make confessions”. However, the original Investigation Officer Akbar Khan deliberately did not investigate the case on these lines being in league with the real culprits against whom the CJ recommended taking proper action.
