ATS officials deliberately killed Osama Satti, reveals judicial probe

ISLAMABAD – A judicial inquiry into the killing of an Islamabad student has revealed that the 22-year-old was shot by Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) officials from all directions and his death was not a mere accident. 

The probe, which was conducted by the additional deputy commissioner Islamabad on the orders of the chief commissioner, also rejected ATS officials claim that the victims was shot by a single personnel. 

Deceased Osama Satti suffered "multiple gunshots fired at him from all directions, which shows that the officers involved had every intention to kill him," Geo news quoted reported as saying. 

It further said that the ATS officials deliberately inform the family of Satti about his death lately, adding that the officers had tried to show the incident as a robbery case.
