Imagine getting justice for your father after 14 long years! A Pakistani girl identified as Maham Amjad recently got her father’s murderer arrested in Dubai with help from Karachi Police and Interpol.
Amjad, who resides in Dubai was persistently trying to get the murderer caught since his assassination in 2008. The culprit behind the murder was his office colleague.
Maham Amjad did not give up and did whatever was possible to avenge her father’s death.
The police are currently working to transfer the culprit to Karachi. In 2009, the court declared the killer a fugitive, while in 2022, his CNIC and passport were also blocked.
She also took to social media to raise her voice and ask for justice. ‘Muhammad Ahmed Amjad was shot 10 bullets on 26.08.2008 in his office by Sales Manager Syed Taqi Haider Shah. Why did the termination happen after 3 days? Were his commissions released after the murder and before termination?’ she wrote in a recent post.

About Maham Amjad’s Father’s Assassination
Muhammad Ahmed Amjad was working as the Regional Chief of State Life Insurance Company, was killed in August 2008 after being shot with 10 bullets in his office near Mithadar Police Station.
Karachi Police registered a case against the Sales Manager, Sayed Taqi Haider Shah, based on the testimony of Ahmed’s Personal Assistant (PA) and an eyewitness, Muhammad Arif.
A successful model and entrepreneur, the Pakistani girl Maham Amjad relocated to Dubai. She continued to put efforts to highlight the case and bring her father’s murderer to justice. Last year, Maham Amjad identified Taqi Shah in the UAE. She approached authorities in Karachi, including South district DIG Irfan Baloch. Another investigation was launched under the superintendent of police for Investigation.
They acquired the travel history of the accused and found that he had fled to Lahore after the murder from where he flew to the UAE on October 24, 2008. The Interpol was brought in, and the transnational body issued a “red notice” for Shah’s arrest at the request of Pakistani authorities.
On Jan 25, 2023, Interpol arrested the accused in the UAE and requested the Pakistani authorities to fulfil legal formalities for his extradition within 30 days. Police added that they completed the required legal procedure within three days.
