Prosecutor Jabran Nasir says the former officer, Rao Anwar, pleaded not guilty at Monday's hearing. He says the trial will begin in April.

The aspiring model, Naqeeb Ullah, was killed under suspicious circumstances in January 2018 in what authorities initially described as shootout during a raid on a militant hideout in the southern port city of Karachi.
