In the latest development in Dr Maha Shah’s alleged suicide case in Karachi, Saad Naseer, the owner of the pistol with which the bullet was fired and which took the life of the young doctor contacted the police and provided some important information, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Saturday.

Saad Naseer called the Police Investigation Officer (IO) and gave information about the pistol found at the crime scene. The TV channel reported that Defence resident Saad Naseer is married and he handed over the pistol to one of his friends.

Police said that now the investigation is being carried out to know the facts whether that “friend” of Saad Naseer directly gave the pistol to Dr Maha or there was any third person involved.

However, Saad Naseer did not record his statement officially in the police station and only provided this information on the phone, the police said.

Karachi Police took statements from Dr Maha’s family members and one of her friends so far. Police termed pistol owner Saad Nasser’s statement to be recorded officially an extremely important step in the investigation, the TV channel reported.

Earlier, Karachi police looking into the death of young lady doctor Dr Maha Shah have widened the scope of the investigation and a police team has set off for Mirpurkhas, the hometown of the deceased, to quiz other members of her family. 

Only Dr Maha’s father had so far spoken to the police insisting that her daughter had committed suicide. But his statement is not matching the circumstantial evidence the police had collected from the scene of the suicide, which is the washroom of the family’s home in Defence area of Karachi. The fact that Dr Maha Shah received a bullet at the backside of her head had put a question-mark on all the suicide theories. The statement of a close friend of Dr Maha Shah that they were about to marry has further complicated the situation.

Recording his statement before the police, Junaid said he and Maha were going to tie the knot soon. He said that Maha was at bad terms with her parents and she was having arguments with them frequently. He said he would pick and drop Maha to the hospital every day. He said that Maha had told him not to visit her house the day when she committed suicide. He said that Maha had been suffering from mental stress due to her domestic problems. 

As the investigation into Maha’s death continued, the pistol that police found at the crime scene has been sent for a forensic audit. Letters have been written to the Police Special Branch and the deputy commissioner (south) to verify who owns the pistol. According to the police, a murder case would be registered once they find evidence of murder.
