IHC thrashes Islamabad police

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has ordered the Islamabad IG to register a FIR against ASI and SHO of the Shalimar Police Station and file the report thereof before it in the case pertaining illegal detention of a citizen. Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui said, “The performance of the Islamabad police is the worst performance. It is the most incompetent police of the world. Police officers come here to throw dust in the eyes of court. The police officers are indulged in corruption.” He gave these remarks while hearing Muhammad Bashir’s illegal detention case on Wednesday. Zahid Asif Chaudhry, counsel for the petitioner, appeared in the court and the accused Muhammad Bashir was also produced before the court. Counsel for the petitioner told the court that the ASI and SHO of the Shalimar Police Station picked up the accused from his home and kept him detained in the police station illegally. He said that the police have presented fake documents in the court. He further told the court that nothing was recovered from the accused nor the police had recorded matter of his arrest in the register. The police have registered a fabricated and baseless FIR and they are deceiving the court by preparing fake documents, he added. The learned judge inquired from the Shalimar Police Station SHO if the arrest of the accused has been registered in the police station, and where is the register in which the arrest entry has been recorded. Was the accused issued a notice? The counsel for the petition told the court that Shalimar Police Station ASI Shaukat Abasi had grabbed Rs 300,000 as ransom from the accused. They used to frighten the family members of the accused by making calls from different numbers, he said.
