Sharif, an award-winning journalist, was killed in an apparent accident on Sunday, October 23,. Police say it was an act of mistaken identity as the vehicle in which he was traveling failed to stop at the roadblock in the area.

A senior Vigilance House officer told The Standard, however, that they would be issuing a detailed report later on the incident.

“I have yet to find the location of the car. The source, who requested anonymity, said that they could confirm that the body, which was identified as Arshad Sharif, of the victim is at Chiromo Mortuary.

Javeria Siddique, his wife, confirmed her husband’s death via Twitter.
