A Joint Investigation Team (JIT) headed by Senior Superintendent Police (SSP) Intelligence Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) Omar Shahid Hamid was constituted on Tuesday to probe the involvement of Amjad Sabri murder suspects Ishaq alias Bobby and Asim alias Capri in various high-profile cases.

The CTD’s arrest of the Ishaq and Asim was announced by Sindh Chief Minister Murad Shah on Monday. The two men allegedly affiliated with the Lashkar-i-Jhangvi Naeem Bukhari group are suspected of involvement in 28 cases.

  • Oct 29 attack on Nazimabad majlis
  • Oct 17 attack on a majlis
  • July 26 attack on army personnel in Saddar
  • June 22 attack on Amjad Sabri
  • May 21 killing of two traffic constables at Aisha Manzil

  • Nov 20, 2015 attack on Rangers personnel in Ittehad Town
  • Aug 29, 2015 attack on Supreme Court judge Advocate Syed Hamid Haider in Hassan Square

A Sindh Home Department notification says the JIT is to investigate the matter within seven days, and will submit a report within two days of conclusion of the probe.
