Sialkot: Murder case against three SHOs
SIALKOT: Carrying out the Lahore High Court order, Daska Saddar police registered a murder case against three SHOs for allegedly killing an innocent youth in a fake encounter near Daska on May 21.
Deceased Kashif’s mother Iqbal Bibi of Dhadhu Basra village had lodged an FIR against Daska City SHO Waqar Javaid Bhatti, Motra SHO Rana Zahid and Daska Saddar SHO Rai Safdar.

The complainant further alleged that the accused SHOs and other police officials had forced her family to leave the village. Upon their return after two months, they found that the police had taken away TV sets, refrigerators and other valuables from their houses, which were badly damaged as well.

Bashiran Bibi, the mother of absconders, urged the Punjab chief minister to provide them security of life and property and save them from the clutches of Daska police besides ensuring the early arrest of the three accused SHOs.
Accused SHO Rai Safdar said the police had the right to demolish the houses of absconders who allegedly shot dead a constable.
