THE RAZA RUMI ANCHOR PERSON EXPRESS NEWS CASE:
Raza Rumi, the anchor person of Express News was a target of Abdur Rauf Gujjar who had watched several programs of Raza Rumi that he opposes Taliban and speaks against madrassas. He (Raza Rumi) was not in favor of talks with taliban hence he was made a target. Abdur Rauf, along with other accused gathered info on Raza Rumi. On the day of the incident the accused Abdur Rauf, Sulaiman Pathan, Sheikh Farhan and Zareef Baswari, came on motorcycle 125/ CG and rickshaw (in which khashinkov was hidden) at about 8:00 p.m. and they gathered at Kalma Square. Abdur Rauf stood Sheikh Farhan outside Express News and said that when Raza Rumi is done with his program and leaves in his car, he will give signal by placing his helmet up and he himself will stand on the opposite side of the road. According to the plan, Sulaiman Pathan had to drive the motorbike while Zareef Baswari was to stand near the motor rickshaw in which Kalashnikov was hidden. They all started waiting for Raza Rumi to come out (of the Express News office.) When Raza Rumi left in his car, Sheikh Farhan made the planned signal at which Sulaiman Pathan started his bike, Abdur Rauf took out the Kalashnikov from the rickshaw and hid them in his coat. They all went to Raja market turn and waited there. After a few moments, when Raza Rumi’s car reached the turn and slowed down, Abdur Rauf fired from the left side of the car. The car’s driver got killed in this attack and Raza Rumi, along with his bodyguard got injured. Sulaiman Pathan and Abdur Rauf quickly ran to Ichra whereas Sheikh Farhan and Zareef Baswari took the motor rickshaw and reached Rehman Pura. From there Abdur Rauf took the motorcycle Honda 125/CG and gave it to Sheikh Farhan and he himself hid the Kalashnikov in rickshaw there and all three, Abdur Rauf, Sulaiman Pathan & Zareef Baswari fled.
