(Web Desk) – The killing of 27-year-old Naqeebullah has sparked protests across the country with Karachi’s Sohrab Goth witnessing a violent outrage on Friday.

Enraged demonstrators surrounded the area, setting tyres on fire and pelting stones at cars to block the main highway of the metropolitan. According to Dunya News, angry protesters blocked super highway and broke windows of a bus. Police remained absent from the scene. 

Naqeebullah was allegedly killed by police during an alleged raid on, what they claimed was, a "terrorist hideout" in Karachi last week. 

The inquiry committee formed to probe Naqeebullah’s killing has termed the police encounter ‘suspicious’. Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Malir Rao Anwar was sacked from his post on Saturday following a probe into the matter. The inquiry committee had recommended removing Anwar after no evidence pertaining to Naqeeb’s involvement in terrorism was found and the encounter was termed as ‘suspicious’.

Following the recommendation of Sindh IG, provincial Home Minister Sohail Anwar Siyal directed to put the name of Rao Anwar in Exit Control List (ECL).

Naqeebullah’s killing has sparked a social media outcry, as his family members reject claims by authorities that he was a member of the Tehreek-e-Taliban, saying he was an innocent aspiring male model, reported Dunya News.
