Muhammad Khan, father of Naqeebullah Mehsud, has passed away on Monday after suffering from a protracted illness.
Muhammad Khan was battling cancer. He became famous in pursuit of the case against notorious executioner of fake police encounters, SSP Rao Anwar, for killing his son Naqeebullah Mehsud. He left this world without receiving justice for his son.
His son was shot dead by police personnel alleging him to be a terrorist, which later erupted a commotion against Rao Anwar on mainstream and social media.
The senior police officer is suspected of killing more than 444 people in staged police encounters.
Funeral prayer of Khan would be offered in Tank city at 10:00 am and then in his village at 2:00 pm, on Wednesday.
Several powerful personalities, including Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa and former chief justice of Pakistan justice (retd) Saqib Nisar, had gave assurance to Muhammad Khan that justice would be served to him, but it could not happen so far.
Speaker National Assembly Asad Qaiser had demanded public hanging of Rao Anwar over murder of youth from South Waziristan in a fake encounter.
Last month Muhammad Khan had pleaded to the court to revoke the bail granted to Rao Anwar. He had said that the suspect had been threatening the prosecution witnesses, hence one of the had taken back his statement.
