Probe body head AIG Sanaullah Abbasi said that the report was made after proper investigation, as the team visited the encounter site and interviewed several people.

On January 12, a police encounter took place in Shah Latif Town of Karachi under the supervision of Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Malir Rao Anwar. He also dismissed the social media campaign in deceased's favour and stuck to his stance that he was a terrorist.On January 18, the Inspector General Police Sindh, Allah Dino Khawaja, ordered the formation of a three-member committee to probe the extrajudicial killing.On January 20, the committee found the 27-year-old innocent, sources informed Geo News.

Appearing discontented over departmental action against SSP Rao Anwar, Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Amir Sirajul Haq on Sunday said the justice to the family of slain youth from South Waziristan couldn't be done with mere transfers and suspensions orders.

The report also suggested putting his name on the Exit Control List (ECL).

Abbasi said important headway was expected during the next meeting of the committee formed to probe the "extrajudicial killing" of Naqeebullah, adding that his family's presence in Karachi was necessary in this regard.

A three-member investigation committee has sent its an interim report on the killing of a 27-year-old Naqeebullah in an alleged police encounter led by SSP Malir Rao Anwar to Sindh government and IG. On Saturday, the committee removed Rao Anwar from his post as SSP.

Rehman Mehsud, a cousin of Mehsud, told the media his family had no connection with the Taliban and had actually fled to Karachi after the militants took over parts of Waziristan.

The police officer told the committee that Naqeeb was wanted by Sachal police. His family claimed he disappeared on January 3 from Sohrab Goth and was then killed in a fake encounter.

Naqeeb remained unaccounted for at least ten days after which his family recognized him when news channels aired pictures of terrorists killed in an encounter. However, his murder whipped up a storm and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan accused the police official of the young man's extrajudicial murderer.
