Killing of Arshad Sharif seemed to be a pre-planned action: FIA Report

ISLAMABAD: The fact-finding committee of the federal government has observed that the killing of anchorperson Arshad Sharif was pre-planned and the attackers knew to whom they were shooting.

The fact-finding committee has mentioned this in its report on Arshad Sharif’s murder in Kenya. The committee has submitted its report to the Interior Ministry a few days ago.

The committee, comprising investigators from FIA, traveled to Kenya and Dubai to obtain facts and answers pertaining to movements of Arshad Shari and his mysterious killing in Kenya.

The committee has ruled out killing of Arshad Sharif due to mistaken identity as claimed by the Kenyan police and said, “it was a pre-planned murder.”

According to report, the fact-finding committee could not find any evidence to establish the theory that Arshad Sharif had been killed because of ‘mistaken identity’.

Prior to his murder, Arshad Sharif was in contact with more than a dozen people in Pakistan, Dubai, and Kenya.

According to report, two suspects _ Khurram and Waqar, also real brothers, were among the few people Arshad was close to before his murder.

The fact finding team has recommended further investigation of these two suspects, saying they were reluctant to share evidence about the high profile murder of Arshad Sharif.
