KARACHI – SSP Malir Rao Anwaar has been cleared of all the charges in an inquiry ordered by the Sindh Chief Minister for misuse of power.

A committee formed under DIG Dr Jameel, concluded the investigations and cleared him of all the charges of misuse of power. The report has been forwarded to the chief minister.

The police officer was suspended following the arrest of Leader of the Opposition in Sindh Assembly Khwaja Izharul Hassan from his home on September 16 for alleged misuse of power.

After the suspension, the Anwaar addressed a press conference and termed his suspension from duty a wrongful act.

“I was placed under suspension in haste and it was wrong to do so,” said Rao Anwar adding that there would be ramifications.

SSP Malir Rao Anwaar has several court cases pending pertaining to illegal detention, extrajudicial killing and fake police encounters.
