QUETTA: Unidentified armed men in Quetta shot dead police surgeon Dr Baqir Shah on Thursday, DawnNews reported.
Dr Baqir Shah, of Bolan Medical Complex, was the key forensic investigator in the Kharotabad incident of May 17 this year in which five foreigners were killed by security personnel.
According to police, Dr Shah was on his way back from the hospital when the armed assailants opened fire on his vehicle on Sabzal Road. He passed away before reaching the hospital.
“I was punished by police for telling the truth about the killing of five foreigners,” Dr Baqir Shah had told Dawn on telephone.
Dr Baqir Shah had rejected the police's earlier claim in the Kharotabad incident that the foreigners had attacked them with hand grenades.
