Rawalpindi cops caught red-handed while looting a man
Islamabad: According to The News, the Islamabad Police have arrested two officers of Rawalpindi Police from Faizabad when they were snatching cash from people and got their two-day physical remand for further investigation, police sources said.
SP (Industrial Area Zone) Jameel Hashmi, when contacted, confirmed the report saying that two assistant sub-inspectors (ASIs) of Rawalpindi Police, identified as Shahid Sabir and Ghulam Abbas, were caught red-handed while they were snatching money at Faizabad from Asad Masih, a construction businessman in Islamabad. He said that they were carrying a wireless set with them in plain clothes and pretended to be officials of Islamabad Police.
The SP, quoting the complainant, said that Asad was driving to his office when two men driving a Suzuki Alto car intercepted him and asked for his identity. They started his body search alleging him to be a terrorist. He said that the policemen snatched Rs40,000 and attempted to escape from the scene but Asad started shouting for help. The Islamabad Police personnel patrolling the area reached there and arrested both police officers red-handed. The police also recovered 5 bottles of liquor from their vehicle.
Hashmi said that the accused police officers were deployed at Adiala Jail on guard duty, adding that accused Shahid Sabir was a habitual criminal and had been dismissed from service twice on the accusation of his involvement in criminal activities and was reinstated on political pressure.
