Usama Satti – PTI mourns party worker killed by anti-terrorist squad in Islamabad

ISLAMABAD – A team of government on Sunday met the family of Usama Satti, who was gunned down by Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) personnel in Islamabad, to extend condolence to the bereaved family. 

Chairperson of the Parliamentary Special Committee on Kashmir Shehryar Khan Afridi, Special Assistant to PM on Overseas Pakistanis Syed Zulfiqar Bukhari and Railways Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed visited the family. 

Bukhari, in a tweet, said that they met the family of Usama, who was a member of the Insaf Student Federation (ISF), on the instructions of Prime Minister Imran Khan. 

They assured them of a complete transparent probe into the matter and its results. He added, “Usama’s services for ISF will not go in vain. All depts meant for public service are answerable to people, no misuse of authority is acceptable”.

During the visit of the interior minister, the father of the deceased youth demanded a judicial probe under the supervision of a high court judge. 

However, the minister said that the government would order a judicial probe if law permits it. 

Chief Commissioner Islamabad Amir Ahmed Ali formed a joint investigation team (JIT) to probe the death of a 22-year-old in an alleged encounter.

Early on Saturday morning, 21-year-old Osama Satti died after ATS Islamabad Police fired 22 shots at the car near G-10 Srinagar Highway. The student reportedly received 17 bullet injuries.

Officials said they received a complaint on Friday night for a robbery bid in Shams Colony. The vehicle CTF officials, who were on patrolling duty, followed the car with tinted glasses and tried to stop it many times.

However, after many failed attempts to stop the car, the CTF officials shot fires on the tyre but the driver received bullets, which led to his death. The body was shifted to the hospital where his post-mortem was conducted.

The funeral prayer of the 22-year-old was offered on Saturday. The funeral was attended by hundreds of citizens of the twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi including Markazi Anjuman Tajiran President Muhammad Kashif Chaudhary.
