Central SSP Arif Aslam Rao says they will find out who fired the bullet that killed Nimra. He told the media an impartial investigation will be conducted and the findings will be shared with the public. We are waiting for the final post-mortem report and the forensic evidence from the crime scene, which we will examine along with the rounds collected from the scene, he said.Nimra was initially brought to Abbasi Shaheed Hospital but could not be treated there because they didnt have the proper facilities.
