Islamabad (Staff Report): The Foreign Office said on Thursday that Afghanistan has not shared any information about Superintendent of Police (SP) Tahir Khan Dawar's murder so far.
SP Dawar had gone missing from Islamabad on October 26 after leaving for a walk in Islamabad’s G-10 area where he lived with his family.
On October 27, his family received a text message sent from his mobile phone claiming that he was well and would be back home soon. The disappearance of Dawar was reported to the K-P police that contacted Islamabad police and an FIR was also lodged.
Later, his body was recovered in Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province last week.
Last week, Afghan authorities handed over the body of Superintendent Police (SP) Tahir Dawar to a Pakistani delegation at the Torkham border.
Prime Minister Imran Khan had ordered an immediate inquiry into the murder of Tahir Khan Dawar.
Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal, during weekly press briefing, said that no information had been received so far from Afghanistan regarding the cop's murder, and that investigation into the incident was under way in Pakistan.
Dr Faisal said that Pakistan had responded to US President Donald Trump’s tweet to 'set the record straight'. Pakistan provided intelligence assistance to the United States to crack down against al Qaeda terrorists, he added.
