Islamabad: ‘Khateeb’ sent on fourteen-day judicial remand
ISLAMABAD: Additional District and Sessions Judge Shaukat Mahmood here on Thursday sent Fateh Muhammad Alvi, ‘khateeb’ of the Masjid Karam Hussain, on a fourteen–day judicial remand in an attempt–to–rape case. Mushtaq Ahmed, father of nine–year–old Kamran Shahzad, appealed before the court to order the Koral Town Police Station SHO to register an FIR against Fateh Muhammad Alvi for making an attempt to rape his son.
In the FIR, it was stated that on September 28, 2007, Kamran Shahzad and his brothers went to the Masjid Karam Hussain for ‘Traveeh’. After prayers, Fateh Muhammad called Kamran Shahzad through a boy to come to his room. The ‘khateeb’ made an attempt to rape the boy but he managed to escape from his room.
After the incident, Mushtaq Ahmed moved an application in the police station against Fateh Muhammad. However Qari Muhammad Aslam, father of Fateh Muhammad, requested him (Mushtaq Ahmed) not to take any legal action against his son and promised in front of residents that his son would not come to the locality in future. But Qari Muhammad Aslam broke his promise and called his son (Fateh Muhammad) back to his house.
On September 2, the judge ordered the Koral Town Police Station SHO to register an FIR against Fateh Muhammad Alvi. After registration of the case, the judge sent the accused on fourteen–day judicial remand and ordered police to produce him before the court after that period.
