Will search for Rao Anwar with you, Imran tells protesting Mehsud tribe in Islamabad

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan on Sunday promised the protesting Mehsud tribe to find Rao Anwar — wanted for the extrajudicial killing of Naqeebullah Mehsud.
Anwar is wanted to the authorities for the extrajudicial killing of Mehsud, a 27-year-old native of Waziristan who was killed along with three others in a fake encounter in Karachi on January 13.
“Rao Anwar has not only killed Naqeebullah, he has killed others too,” Imran said. “Be it Islamabad or elsewhere, I will find Rao Anwar with you.”
The PTI chief was addressing a press conference outside the National Press Club in the federal capital, where members of the Mehsud tribe are staging a protest sit-in to demand justice in the Naqeebullah killing case.
“You are not alone, the entire country is with you,” he told the protestors, as he criticised drone attacks in Waziristan. “The drone attacks are a violation of human rights.” 
 Imran, in his address, also claimed that he was always opposed to sending the Pakistan Army to the tribal areas. 
“We should have never participated in the United States’ war,” he said. “We should not have sent our army to the tribal areas.”
