November 15, 2018 | Brainwave Science
A high-ranking Pakistan Police officer who was abducted from the country’s capital Islamabad last month has been found dead in Afghanistan. Superintendent of Police (Peshawar) Tahir Khan Dawar went missing from his residence in Islamabad after he went for the evening walk.
Pakistan PM Imran Khan ordered a quick investigation into the mysterious death of a senior police officer. He ordered the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government to coordinate with Islamabad police to investigate the homicide. Pakistan Police learned of kidnapping after Dawar’s abductors released a picture of him along with a letter of the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan’s Khurasani group claiming responsibility for the kidnapping and the killing. However, The Pakistani Taliban denied any role in Dawar ‘s abduction and killing. According to Information Minister, the abductors ruthlessly tortured and killed Dawar in Afghanistan. A picture circulated on social media account on November 13 showed Dawar’s body with a handwritten note.
According to military spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor, “His abduction, move to (Afghanistan), murder and follow up behavior of Afghan authorities raise questions which indicate involvement or resources more than a terrorist organization.”
The Afghan Foreign Ministry has informed the Pakistan Embassy in Kabul that the body was found by local people in Dur Baba district. The letter claimed Dawar arrested and killed several militants in past years and warned other Pakistan law enforcement personnel of the same fate. This isn’t the first time when Pakistan law enforcement personnel were abducted from their offices or home and later their bodies were recovered in Afghanistan.
Pakistan and war-torn Afghanistan are highly infected by political and economic instability, Taliban, Hard-line Islamists, rampant corruption and terrorism to name just a few of many. Pakistan especially is accused by other countries including India and the United States of turning a blind eye and supporting terrorist groups such as Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT),. Jaish-e-Mohammed and Al Qaeda which have been added to Designated Foreign Terrorist Organizations by the US.
Militants in Pakistan carry out near-daily attacks, mainly targeting security forces. Militants mostly target law enforcement personnel through bombs, mass shooting or least favorite kidnapping. According to Interior Minister Shaharyar Afridi, Dawar himself escaped two suicide bombings in recent years. Most of the attacks have been linked to the Pakistani Taliban and other Islamic extremists. The opposition, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, has condemned the current government of Prime Minister Imran Khan saying, “It is shocking that one of our top police officials is kidnapped from Islamabad and shifted to Afghanistan without being noticed……The way this government has dealt with the entire matter is unconvincing and a lot remains to be answered.”
The present situation in Pakistan requires improved national security strategy to reign in peace while world sees it as a country in chaos.
The Trump administration’s decision to suspend military aid to Pakistan is one of the most significant U.S. punitive actions against Pakistan since 2001. Pakistan has long been a difficult and disruptive neighbor to Afghanistan, hoping to limit India’s influence there, and cultivating radical groups within Afghanistan as proxies. It has augmented Afghanistan’s instability by providing intelligence, weapons, and protection to the Afghan Taliban and the Haqqani network.
However, Pakistan is still battling against the menace of terrorism on both the fronts; external as well as internal. It is a globally recognized fact the law enforcement agencies play a critical role as the first line of defense against security issues, but the statement contradicts when victims are the law enforcement personnel. Can Pakistan correct its course as a nation at this juncture in history and restore the faith of its citizenry in good governance, law and order, peace and security? Yes, it can, the change can begin with a technology designed and developed to protect the interests of the nation. Impeccably accurate and non-invasive iCognative technology has heard the calling of security agencies and is ready to serve national security agencies in Pakistan. iCognative developed by Brainwave Science detects the hidden information in the brain of the suspect and determines with over 99% accuracy whether he or she possesses specific crime-related information or not.
iCognative is a true friend of law enforcement and national security personnel. The test supports human rights so any arrested or suspected terrorists or sympathizers could be subjected to this test. It has the power to determine with over 99% accuracy what they really know and further provide the accurate information necessary to solve Dawar’s murder case, find the perpetrators, identify the militants, masterminds within the region and eliminate terrorism. Most often than not the security agencies close case files upon arrest of foot soldiers, with power of iCognative agencies can trace back all levels as well as financing means that support an extremist or militant group. This leads to a complete tear down of the whole network that exists to disrupt security.
A 45-minute long iCognative test once utilized by Pakistan Police on the suspected militants would determine what information he or she possesses about kidnapping and abduction of SSP Dawar such as which specific organization was involved, how he was abducted and smuggled to Afghanistan, what information was sought from him, who is the head of the terrorist organization and other vital information. Assigned Investigator uploads all crime-related information such as date and time of the abduction, type of vehicle used, route of abduction, last known location of Dawar’s mobile, method of killing, picture of the victims and suspected accomplices, etc., that would be known only the real militant into the iCognative system test protocol. All this information (called Stimuli) would be displayed to the suspect on a digital screen while a proprietary headset would record brain responses to each stimulus. The results are always automated and system driven. At the end of the test iCognative technology determines with over 99% accuracy if a suspect possesses specific crime-related information or not.
iCognative technology is reliable and safe as irrespective of a countless test on the same suspect, the technology will provide the same results each time. iCognative is the most in-demand scientific technology as it identifies known and unknown militants within a short time frame, providing the exact investigative tool required by Pakistan law enforcement agencies to fight the war against the forces that threaten national security.
