Karachi: Warrants against cops issued
KARACHI: A judicial magistrate on Tuesday issued warrants for the arrest of five policemen and a medico-legal officer for not appearing in court to record their statements in two separate cases.
The police arrested Faizan in 2009 within the remit of the Boat Basin Police Station for allegedly possessing illicit weapons and booked him in a case (FIR 564/09) under Section 13-D of the Arms Ordinance.
However, prosecution witnesses — Inspector Mohammad Nawaz Chattha, Head Constable Mohammad Ali and Constable Zulifqar Anwar — did not appear in court to record their testimonies despite court orders.
In the second case, accused Danish was charged with possessing an unlicensed weapon and a case was registered in 2009 against him under Section 13-D of the Arms Ordinance at the Kharadar Police Station.
The court asked the police high-ups to arrest the witnesses and produce them in court till Feb 19 and Feb 8, respectively.
