The release of accused Shahid Yusuf alias Golimar, who was included in the Red Book, has sparked controversy due to the poor investigation process in Karachi.
Shahid Yusuf alias Golimar was handed over to the police by the Rangers and was produced in court. However, he was later released on bail and has since escaped. Despite several raids in the areas of Lyari, Malir, and Pak Colony, the police have been unable to locate him.
Sindh Police and CTD (Counter-Terrorism Department) have issued a new edition of the Red Book, which is an official document that lists the most wanted individuals suspected of involvement in terrorism.
Page 123 of the Red Book contains the details of Shahid Yusuf alias Golimar, who was arrested by the Rangers last year and was wanted by law enforcement agencies for a range of serious crimes, including murder, attempted murder, extortion, and drug dealing.
Shahid Yusuf alias Golimar is believed to have been involved in the murder case of Arshad Pappu. He joined the gang war in 2009 under the direction of Uzair Baloch.
In response to the poor investigation process, SSP Shumail Riaz has dismissed two sub-inspectors, Khalid Bangish and Shakir of the Pak Colony police station. According to the police, these sub-inspectors were unable to arrest the gang war commander in most cases.
SSP Investigation Shumail Riaz was asked to comment on the release of Shahid Yusuf alias Golimar in exchange for an alleged bribe, but he declined to respond.
The Red Book is an official document issued by the Sindh Police and the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) that lists the most wanted individuals suspected of involvement in terrorism.
