Sahiwal DSP raped my daughter, alleges woman
LAHORE: A woman alleged at a press conference on Monday that the Sahiwal Saddar Circle deputy superintendent of police had kidnapped her daughters and raped one of them. Shamshad, a resident of Chak 53-E, Jeevan Shah, Arifwala district, spoke to reporters at the Lahore Press Club, alleging that DSP Sajid Hassan and his accomplices kidnapped her daughters Amina and Abida from their house on January 5.
She alleged that the police officer detained the girls at his house where he tried to rape Amina. She alleged that the DSP left Amina alone, but raped Abida. She alleged that the police officer detained her daughters for three days. “My daughters escaped from the DSP’s house on the third day,” she added.
She alleged that the DSP had done the deed in connivance with her relatives Muhammad Ashraf alias Acho, Sarfaraz, Asad Shirazi, Alam Sher and Asim Chishti. She alleged that Acho and his accomplices had killed her husband Mian Muhammad Ahmed. She alleged that an FIR of the murder had been registered with Fareed Town police station. “However, Acho and his accomplices managed to pin the murder on my son Awais Sohail,” she alleged.
She alleged that Acho got married to her daughter Amina under the pretext that he would help get her brother (Awais) out of police custody. She alleged that Acho beat her daughter up after marrying her and detained her in his house.
She alleged that she filed a complaint with the Sahiwal sessions judge and managed to get Amina released. “Amina filed for divorce and Acho started threatening her,” Shamshad alleged.
She alleged that she lodged a rape case with the police station concerned, but the police did not register a case against the DSP. She alleged that after escaping from the DSP’s house, her daughters got to Lahore and managed to get permission to stay at the Darul Aman from judicial magistrate Naeem Iqbal Syed.
She said she had filed a complaint against the DSP and his accomplices in the court of Justice Ikhlaq Ahmed of the Lahore High Court. She alleged that the DSP was threatening to kill her if she did not stop pursuing the case. She asked for government protection.
Daily Times spoke to DSP Sajid Hassan on the issue. The DSP denied the allegations against him, saying former Fareed Town police station house officer Sajjad Dogar had kidnapped Shamshad’s daughters and had raped Abida. He said a kidnapping and rape case against the former SHO was registered with the Sahiwal Civil Lines police station. The DPS said Sahiwal DPO Syed Javed Hussain Shah had suspended the SHO for illegally detaining Abida, Amina and their brother for three days. He alleged that Shamshad was a prostitute and had made the allegations against him on the former SHO’s behest.
