ISLAMABAD: An anti-terrorism court on Wednesday extended the physical remand of the five policemen arrested in the Usama Nadeem Satti murder case.
During the hearing, the investigating officer presented the medical report of the victim and revealed that Usama Satti was hit by five bullets from the back and one from the front.
The court inquired about whether there were any bullet marks on the victim’s car seat to which the investigating officer did not check to see or take pictures of the vehicle from the front.
The judge presiding over the hearing expressed his displeasure at the investigating officer over the lack of pictures from the crime scene.
One of the accused officers was summoned to the rostrum and asked questions about the incident and how everything took place.
According to the accused, they got a call from the Shams Colony ASI about a robbery in the area and directed to approach the Srinagar Highway and stop a white car with four passengers.
The judged inquired about whether anyone from the car fired at the officers, to which the accused responded that there was no firing at them.
The court was emphasized that Usama Satti was driving a car and asked why did the officers not follow the vehicle and stop it and instead opted for shooting at it.
Meanwhile the victim’s father is not satisfied with the police investigation and has asked Chief Justice of Pakistan Gulzar Ahmed to take suo-motu notice, adding that a fair trial must be conducted as soon as possible.
He has demanded that a judicial commission should be set up to preside over an independent investigation into the murder of his son Usama Satti.
The father claims that his son was “pulled out of the car” and “shot six time in the face, legs, head and chest” adding that “there are no signs of blood on the car seat,”
Meanwhile, the victim’s mother criticized Prime Minister Imran Khan for forming a “Naya Qabaristan” instead of his promised “Naya Pakistan”.
