Meet DySp Shah | The Top Cop Who Played A Decisive Role In Asifa's Rape And Murder Case

Nisar Shah, DySP Crime Branch, Jammu has played a decisive role in Asifa's rape and murder case as he happens to be one of the most instrumental officers in the Special Investigation Team (SIT) which investigated Asifa's case in record time and submitted the charge sheet way ahead of the deadline fixed by the High Court.

It takes enormous courage and spine to withstand what he withstood along with his teammates while investigating such a sensitive and high profile case. This is indeed an object of admiration for the whole state and especially Pir Panjal region from where he hails.
