Rasheed Ahmed, a resident of Sabzazar had submitted an application to Ombudsman contending that on July 5 aforementioned police officials forcibly entered into his house and looted valuables including four toola gold and Rs 16,000 cash. He further stated that the police officials tortured and attempted to rape his wife. Later, the said policemen offered friendship to his wife and upon non-cooperation of his wife, they (policemen) extended life threats through mobile phone calls, he added.
On the complaint of Rasheed, the Ombudsman had directed DIG (Operations) to look into the matter and submit a report. Later, the DIG submitted his report considering the allegations levelled by Rasheed against the Nawankot police officials as worthless and not factual.
Over this, Rasheed submitted his reply along with statements of his neighbours in support of his allegations. During the joint hearing accused SI Ghulam Mustafa denied the allegations but could not give any justification of threatening calls to complaint’s wife. Entering into Rasheed’s house was proved by the statement of SI Ghulam Abbas. Whereas, all the constables stated that they were bound by the orders of their seniors.
