(Karachi) Police have nabbed a hit man, who killed TV reporter Wali Khan Babar in Liaquatabad area in 2011, Karachi Police Chief Ghulam Nabi Memon told media on Monday.

Addressing a press conference, he said that the murderer has been identified as Kamran alias Shani and he is the main person who fired shots at Geo News reporter Wali Khan Babar.

“He shot Wali Babar… he is the main shooter that’s why he was given death penalty by the ATC.”

On January 13, 2011, Babar was gunned down when he was returning home from his office.

In 2014, an anti-terrorism court had awarded four men life imprisonment in the murder case while two others, Faisal alias Mota and Kamran alias Shani, were given death sentences in absentia.

Faisal alias Mota was arrested from Nine Zero, the headquarters of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement in March 2015, while Kamran alias Zeeshani Shani was on the run.

The Karachi police chief said that Kamran alias Zeeshan Shani was arrested by a Special Investigation Unit Monday morning on a tip-off from a federal intelligence agency.

Memon revealed that Zeeshan told the investigators they killed Wali Khan Babar because he worked for ANP and was making stories against the MQM and Altaf Hussain.

The police chief maintained that the ‘shooter’ joined the MQM (London) in 2008 and became part of Faisal alias Mota’s target killing team.
