In connection to the recent murder of Careem Captain Sajawal Ameer, two suspects have been arrested by the police.
Ameer, on Tuesday at 10:35 PM, was shot to death by the alleged suspect in Rawalpindi and his car was stolen. Such cases have increased in the past few months. Only 3 weeks ago, Junaid Mustafa was killed in Islamabad and afterwards, another captain Rizwan Niazi was attacked by robbers in Rawalpindi 2 weeks ago.
In order to prevent any future incidents, Careem is working with the police and also providing compensation to the families of the departed captains. In relation to 22-year-old Sajawal Ameer’s murder, Careem’s statement reads,
We sadly announce that our Captain Sajawal Ameer was killed last night at 10:35 pm in a car snatching incident. His death is a terrible tragedy and Careem mourns with his family and prays for Sajawal Ameer’s soul.
This is the second such incident to have occurred in Islamabad in the recent past. We appeal to authorities to take strict notice of these incidents and enhance efforts to drastically improve the safety of citizens.
While nothing can ever replace Captain Sajawal Ameer or take away the family’s sorrow, the whole Careem team stands with them in this very tough time. We will vehemently take this case up through legal channels. Due compensation will also be provided to the family. Most importantly, we will urge lawmakers to take note of this deteriorating security situation in Islamabad and immediately take steps to improve the situation. Every member of the Careem family, Captains, Customers and Colleagues, are equally pained and request you to please pray for the departed soul.
This is a developing story, we will update this story as it progresses and more details become available.
