Rawalpindi: Six recovered from illegal police custody
RAWALPINDI: A bailiff appointed by district and sessions judge here on Wednesday recovered six men from the illegal custody of Kahuta police and handed them over to their relative.
Malik Lal raided the Kahuta police station on the complaint of Raja Habibur Rehman Advocate and recovered Shabbir Hussain, Raja Pehlwan Khan, Mohammad Pervaiz, Amjad Hussain, Shaukat Hussain and Afzal and handed them over to the complainant. The bailiff told the judge Attaullah Kosar that there was neither a complaint nor a criminal case registered against the men in the Roznamcha of the police.
According to the complainant, the police picked the men three days ago, saying they would be interrogated in a wood theft case. The judge directed the SHO to appear in the court on June 16 and explain why the men were kept in unlawful confinement. Meanwhile, an additional district and sessions judge issued non-bailable arrest warrants of SHO Gujar Khan for not appearing in the court to submit his reply in a petition seeking registration of a kidnapping for ransom case.
The judge Rana Muhammad Ali also served show-cause notice on a sub-inspector and directed him to appear in the court on June 14. Mohammad Jehangir told the court that he approached the Gujar Khan police to get a case registered after he was kidnapped on May 26 last year and released after he paid Rs400,000 as a ransom.
