Last week, a terrorist attack practise held outside Huawei’s office in Islamabad resulted in the death of one person.
The simulation was planned by a third party to assess the security guards’ readiness and capabilities in the case of a terrorist assault, according to the First Information Report (FIR) reviewed by ProPakistani.
According to sources who spoke to ProPakistani, the exercise was conducted outside Huawei Pakistan’s office, but not by Huawei Pakistan itself.
More significantly, the third-party vendor who conducted the drill failed to alert the authorities to it.
According to the FIR, which was submitted by the victim’s father on March 19, 2023, the security guard shot Mudassir, an office kid who worked at the Huawei office building but was paid by a third party, with his “223 rifle.” After being taken to the hospital, the 33-year-old was declared dead.
The FIR states that the security guard was charged for violating Section 302 of the Pakistan Criminal Code at the Karachi Company police station in Islamabad.
The drill’s goal was to evaluate the preparedness and reactions of the security personnel.
The victim’s family has requested that justice be served and that the security guard who saw the incident last week as well as any other firm employees present be the subject of an investigation. Unambiguously, the father of the deceased in the FIR stated that all employees present at the site should be questioned.
To resolve this issue, according to Huawei, compensation negotiations are currently taking place between the security firm and the contractor.
