Funeral prayers of the police surgeon

JECOBABAD: Funeral prayers of the martyred police surgeon Dr Baqir Shah was offered and the body was sent to his village Lari Tanian where the burial would take place. Earlier his body was sent to Dera Murad Jamali where friends and relatives expressed their grief for his merciless killing in Quetta.

Dr Shah was gunned down by unidentified gunmen at Sabzal road at a hospital in Quetta while he was on his way to home. He had earlier spoken about death threats from unknown people in a televised press conference earlier this year after he resisted pressure to fudge the postmortem reports of four unarmed Russians and a Tajik shot dead by police in Kharotabad.
