Four SIs found guilty of lodging fake case in Lahore
LAHORE: Four Sub-Inspectors (SIs) including an SHO of the City Police have been found guilty in a fake case, which they lodged against a citizen to mint money, said the official documents. Civil Lines Police Division SP (Investigation) Cap (r) Liaqat Ali Malik has recommended the DIG (investigation) for strict punitive action against the guilty police officers including a major punishment of dismissal.
The negligent police officers include SI Anwar Sultan, Police Station Defence Area, Qilla Gujjar Singh Police Station SHO SI Majid Bashir, SI Muhammad Akbar, Police Station Defence B and SI (investigation) Muhammad Sarwar, Qilla Gujjar Singh Police Station.
The inquiry report said an FIR (1289/06) under Section 489-F was registered against Shahid Mehmood, son of Latif, at Defence Police Station some four years back on the statement of a woman Chanda Abdul Rauf, resident of Shahdara Town. “The case was filed in the court of Justice Haider Ali Khan MS/30 where the accused was sent to jail for three years and fined Rs 45,000,” the report says. However, after his release the investigation officer Anwar Sultan did not attach original check with the case giving a legal way to the victim party to register another case against the accused on the same charges. According to report, another case (930/10) under Section 489-F was lodged against Shahid Mehmood on the statement of Qaiser Sana Ullah, brother-in-law of Chanda Abdul Rauf, on August 17, 2010 at Qilla Gujjar Singh police station.
