ISLAMABAD – The Supreme Court on Tuesday sought a comprehensive report from Islamabad Police about the investigation on displaying anti-judiciary posters and banners in Islamabad within 15 days.
A three-member bench headed by Justice Jawwad S Khawaja heard a petition filed by the Independent Media Corporation (Pvt) regarding unwanted posters and banners in Islamabad. During the proceeding, the court directed the Inspector General of the Islamabad police to submit report on the investigation of the matter and action taken against the police officials who made less diligent effort to arrest the culprits involved in displaying the posters and the banners.
Deputy Attorney General Khawaja Ahmed Hassan apprised the court that at least three police personals were suspended on the basis of recommendations made during the investigations. Police chief Aftab Ahmad Cheema told the bench that notices have been issued to as many as 30 police personals, adding that the main accused in the case Muhammad Rashid used title 'Farzandan Islam' for himself and worked for international media.
Justice Khawaja remarked that the court would interrupt the investigation following the less diligent effort made by the police during the investigation. SSP told the bench that the police was making full efforts to investigate the matter as soon as possible, adding that positive result would be expected in coming days.
He said that the investigation of the matter would be completed in 15 days. The court adjourned proceeding of the case till July 22.
