Rao Anwar biographyRao Anwar was elected as SSP Malir in 1982 and when he became sub-inspector, he appointed SHO for Nazimabad as he was also involved in two operations against MQM at that time. Lots of officers transferred from one post to another but Mr. Rao stick to his seat and once when he had to leave his post, he assigned as SHO Jackson with the help of higher political figure. He had also rejected the request of sorry to MQM from former SP Chaudhary Aslam and went to Balochistan from where he returned in 2008 at Karachi at the time of the ruling government of PPP.
Reellected as SSP MalirSenior police official Rao Anwar was reinstated as Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Malir on Jan 2017, following direct orders issued to Sindh police by Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, it has been learned. A notification in this regard was issued by the office of Inspector General of Sindh Police. IG Police A D Khawaja later told Dawn that Rao Anwar was appointed as Malir SSP on written order of the Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, as it was latter’s prerogative to appoint the SSP and DIG rank officer. “Legally, I can’t refuse the chief minister’s written order for appointment of Rao Anwar as Malir SSP,” Khowaja replied briefly when contacted to confirm the matter. Rao Anwar was suspended after he raided Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Khawaja Izhar-ul-Hasan's house without the permission of the Sindh Assembly speaker.
Rao Anwar Recent Encounter
Former President Asif Ali ZardariSo when former president Asif Ali Zardari recently called him a “brave kid” on a private news channel, the backlash from people – already horrified at the brutal fashion in which a Waziristani youth had been killed allegedly by Anwar and his men – was anything but misplaced. Zardari later retracted his statement through his spokesperson, but the incident confirmed that Anwar has friends in high places. How else could a man responsible for killing nearly 500 people (or more), and declared an absconder by the country’s top court, still remain a fugitive — and be praised by a former president!
Press Conference Against the MQMIn April 2015, he made an explosive – but unsubstantiated – the revelation in a fiery press conference against the MQM and its chief, Altaf Hussain, who, the police official said, was working on India’s behest to destroy Pakistan. The refrain sounded familiar. The army had made the same accusation back in the 1990s — when Hussain and his men were accused of carving out ‘Jinnahpur’, an autonomous state, out of Sindh. The Rangers, too, have been using the same allegations to cut the MQM’s street power down to size. Anwar has friends in very high places indeed.
Remarks of Sohail Anwar SiyalSindh Home Minister Sohail Anwar Siyal has said that a three-member committee has been formed to probe the suspected extrajudicial killing of Naseemullah alias Naqeebullah, a 27-year-old from South Waziristan. "The committee will present its report within three days," the home minister said, during his appearance on Geo News' show 'Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada Kay Sath'. He said the inquiry committee has the concerned station house officer (SHO) removed from his post. Siyal urged that anyone having any information on the case should appear before the committee. "I assure that if Naqeebullah is found innocent, then action will be taken against responsible individuals." The home minister said that the three officers inducted in the committee bear good repute, adding that he will try to meet father of Naseemullah. If Rao Anwar fails to satisfy the committee, then he too will not remain on his post, he said.
Removed From PostSSP Malir Rao Anwar has been removed from his post after the probe committee formed over the extrajudicial killing of Naqeebullah Mehsud found the 27-year-old to be innocent, a notification issued on 20 January 2018 stated. In its report, the committee stated that there was no proof found of Naqeebullah being a terrorist. The 2014 FIR presented by Anwar was also bogus, it said. The committee in its report also recommended the registration of a case against Rao Anwar and other personnel involved in Naqibullah's killing. Anwar’s name should also be placed on the Exit Control List (ECL), the report stated.
RaidAn intelligence agency on 2nd Feb 2018 raided different addresses in Malir District to arrest former SSP Rao Anwar and another police officer for their alleged involvement in the extrajudicial murder of Naqeebullah Mehsud. The raids come a day after Supreme Court of Pakistan directed secret agencies to help Sindh police arrest the coppers involved in the killing of the man from South Waziristan. The instructions to the intelligence agencies were given at the request of Sindh Inspector General Police A.D Khowaja.

The three-member bench, headed by the chief justice, ordered the Islamabad Police not to arrest Anwar and provide him security till the JIT completes its probe. The protective bail has been granted until Friday and if he will not appear before the supreme court that he will be arrested and no protective bail will be given to him.
