The death of Naqeebullah Mehsud, a Pushtoon who moved from South Waziristan to Karachi, in an ‘encounter’ led by Senior Superintendent of Police Rao Anwar has been highlighted by the social media owing to the fact that the deceased had no affiliation with any of the terrorist organizations.
The claims made by the Police that the 27-year-old Naqeeb belonged to Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) have not convinced anyone on social media.
Furthermore, the relatives of the slain Pushtoon have made it clear that Naqeeb had no association with any of the terrorist organizations named by the Police department, rather he was a shop owner who loved modelling.
Pakistani Twitterati and civil society activists have sparked a movement, demanding justice for the victim of the Karachi Police’s high-handedness.
Here’s what people are saying about the issue.
#JusticeForNaqeebMehsud #NaqeebMehsud. We are not satisfied with inquiry of PPP Govt given the parties old and well reported ties with #RaoAnwar. A suspension may be used to pacifu protestors and suppress the issue. We demand a judicial inquiry by Supreme Court pic.twitter.com/5yyg2vV3au

Everyone stands against the unjust killing of the Pushtoon.
I vehemently condemn the corrupt and inept sindh police for the extra judicial killing of an innocent Waziristani brother of mine. He leaves three kids behind. His name is #NaqeebMehsud and his crime was that he was a tribal pukhtoon. #JusticeForNaqeeb pic.twitter.com/GQrRs7SGgz

SSP Rao Anwar needs to be questioned.
SSP Rao Anwar is not a protector. He is a killer, he kills innocent people in fake encounters.
Enough is enough now,
Arrest and hang him#justiceForNaqeeb #JusticeForNaqib #NaqeebMehsud #RaoAnwar#HangRaoAnwar

Such acts must be condemned and culprits must be interrogated.
A judicial inquiry into the matter should be set up, to expose the culprits behind the mysterious killing of a young Naqeeb Mehsud in Karachi. No one shall be above the rule of law. It is believed he was killed in a fake encounter by Sindh Police. Condemn such acts #NaqeebMehsud pic.twitter.com/lDH5Qx3rhl
