Police team to bring ‘surrendered’ SSP Mufakhar back

In the latest development, a Punjab Police team has been dispatched to bring SSP Mufakhar Adeel to Lahore, who had earlier surrendered himself in another province on the assurance of an important political personality.

The team will bring back the fugitive SSP to Punjab where further action will be taken.

Earlier on Sunday night, the drop scene of SSP Mufakhar Adeel episode was witnessed after month-long speculations and rumours when the senior officer, who is accused of killing his best friend Shehbaz Ahmed Tatla, surrendered before the police.

Two high-profile officers – Mufakhar and former assistant attorney general Tatla –were reportedly kidnapped by unidentified suspects under suspicious circumstances a month ago. Both Mufakhar and Tatla belonged to Narowal.

Mufakhar is a Battalion Commander-I of Punjab Constabulary, Lahore, who joined the Police Service of Pakistan in 2008.

Punjab IGP Shoaib Dastagir had ordered an inquiry and immediate recovery of them.

The childhood friends went missing the same day, which alarmed the Punjab Police, making it investigate the matter with different angles. Later, it was confirmed that Tatla was murdered but his body has not been found yet.
