'3 Calls Critical': Phone Record of Wazirabad Attacker Released
The forensic report of the phone confiscated from Naveed, suspect in the attack on PTI chief Imran Khan in Wazirabad, has been acquired, media reports suggest.

As per the report, the suspect was in possession of two international SIM cards, while the phone has 138 contacts and it was used to make a total of 1,869 calls.

The phone also has 337 SMS, 1,956 pictures, and 212 videos. Experts have been unable so far to retrieve the deleted data from Naveed's phone.

Two numbers, one of which is of Thailand and two others local, have been declared 'crucial' for ongoing investigation.

The DVDs of the audios and videos in the phone have been sent to the JIT for further investigation into the crime.

A day earlier (Jan 6), police sources termed the JIT report that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf presented in the Wazirabad firing case riddled with flaws, as per reports.

It stated that the medico-legal formalities of the incident were not carried out via local hospital, while the FIR of the alleged assassination attempt was also registered after a passage of four days.

The report further say that the FIR of the weapon recovered from suspect Naveed was registered after the passage of several days.

According to JIT sources, the bullet that took Muazzam’s life was fired from an SMG rifle, and recovery of two of its cartridges adds to suspicion.

Moreover, as per the report brought to the fore by the PTI, some 47 bullets were fired at the crime scene.

Police sources, as media reports suggested, also objected to the release of the suspect’s video. They hold the opinion that unveiling a high-profile suspect prior to the identification parade weakens the case.

Legal experts say the FIR of the incident was registered after a passage of 12 days and the JIT members were changed thrice, while the container also wasn’t sealed immediately after the crime.
