During the visit, the team gathered facts that are completely different from the information given by the Kenyan police.
According to ARY News staff, there are bullet holes on both sides of Arshad Sharif’s vehicle, suggesting that the bullets were fired from both sides and at close range.
The team revealed that neither the crime scene was secure nor that sufficient evidence had been collected from the site.
“Kenya police implicated in murder”
The senior FIA official also pointed to serious contradictions in the statements of three Kenyan police officials during questioning by the Pakistani investigative team into the murder of distinguished journalist Arshad Sharif.
The Director General of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), Mohsin Hassan Butt, in a conversation with American media, said that investigators in Pakistan had questioned three Kenyan police shooters about the incident. .
“There were serious contradictions in their statements to the point of being illogical,” Mohsin Butt said.
“All three repeated the same position already declared by the Kenyan police to the media,” said DG FIA.
“One of the four police officers involved in the shooting has not been presented to Pakistani investigators,” an FIA official said. “The official not shown in front of the Pakistani team was among those who opened fire on Arshad Sharif,” he added.
“The Kenyan police said they opened fire when the car did not stop,” said DG FIA. “We believe Kenyan police were involved in the targeted assassination of Arshad Sharif,” the FIA boss said.
“We did not have access to the shooter, who injured his hand in the incident two weeks ago,” the FIA chief said. “Not having access to the shooter is counterintuitive because this officer’s statement is important,” he said.
One of Pakistan’s top investigative journalists, Arshad Sharif, was gunned down on the outskirts of Nairobi city in Kenya on October 23. The ARY News Powerplay show was Arshad’s last outing on national television.
He had worked for major news channels and newspapers in the country in the past. He received the Presidential Pride of Performance award for outstanding journalism in 2019.
His show “Powerplay” was one of the most watched talk shows in Pakistan and people loved how Arshad told stories about corruption and misdeeds of the ruling elite with solid evidence.
