No Evidence about Student Mashal Committed blasphemy
Inspector General Police (IGP) Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Salahuddin Khan Mehsud on Monday said an initial investigation into Mashal’s lynching last week revealed there was nothing concrete to suggest that any of the three accused had committed blasphemy.
“There is nothing concrete to suggest that Mashal, Abdullah, or Zubair had committed blasphemy, according to the investigation,” Mehsud said.
The KP police chief said 59 suspects had been arrested in connection with the case, out of which six were university officials. Police had registered a first investigation report (FIR) against 20 suspects, of which 16 have been arrested so far. The IG stated that during the investigation 11 more suspects were identified, of which six have been arrested.
