Haji Attaullah Dasti, 42, a Traffic Sergeant was performing his duty on Shaheed Fayaz Sunbal Chowk on Tuesday evening when a vehicle ran over him. He was taken to Trauma centre but succumbed to injuries soon.

According to Balochistan Voices, some sources have alleged that in fact Abdul Majeed Achakzai himself was driving the vehicle and is now presenting his driver as a scapegoat to get away with the murder of Traffic Sergeant.

While the MPA’s car was taken into custody and its driver detained, according to police claims, the case was registered under Sergeant Asim against unidentified persons.

It is still unclear whether the police claims were true, and if they were, why the case was filed against unknown persons.

Abdul Majeed Achakzai belongs to Pashtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PKMAP) and currently, he is the chairman of Public Accounts Committee (PAC).
