PESHAWAR: Inspector General Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Salahuddin Khan Mehsud has said that there was no concrete evidence which proves that Mardan University students committed blasphemy.
“Police found no proof against the students including Mashal Khan,” he said, adding that Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has been asked to help in the matter.
The IG said that Mashal Khan was killed before being given a chance to defend himself.
“59 suspects have been arrested, out of which six are university officials,” Salahuddin said, “police had registered a FIR against 20 suspects.”
Last week 23-year-old Mashal Khan was killed, and another seriously injured, by a vigilante mob for allegedly publishing blasphemous content online.
