Karachi: Court reissued investigation against three policeman
KARACHI: The civil judge and judicial magistrate, Central, Sohail Ahmed, re-issued a show-cause to the investigation officer in a case against three policemen who had allegedly opened fire on two motorcyclists, directing him to submit a charge-sheet by May 31.
According to the prosecution, the police constables, Mohammad Imran, Arif Hussain and Salman Farsi, had allegedly opened fire on Zubair Khan and Mohammad Saqib on March 21 near Sakhi Hasan, North Nazimabad. Both the youngsters were taken to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, but Zubair succumbed to his wounds while Saqib was admitted to the hospital in a critical situation.
Earlier, the court had issued around seven show-cause notices to the IO and had also directed the SSP (investigation) of the police’s west zone to ask the IO to submit a charge-sheet. However, they failed to comply with the court’s orders. A case (FIR No 164/08) was registered under Sections 302, 324/34 of the Pakistan Penal Code at the Taimuria police station against the policemen.
