Rawalpindi: 3 cops remanded
RAWALPINDI: A judge of Anti–Corruption Court on Tuesday remanded three police officials arrested in connection with Ratta Amral rape case, in two-day police custody till May 17. The three police officials including deputy superintendent of police city circle Taimoor Khan, ex–SHO Ratta Amral sub–inspector Jawad Shah and the then investigating officer sub–inspector Zafar Gondal were arrested in connection with the rape case and tempering with the police record. They were produced in the Special Court of Justice Chaudhry Ameer Mohammad Khan for remand custody.
The Anti–Corruption Establishment’s (ACE) investigating officer Inspector Tanveer Ahmad sought ten-day remand from the court to recover the ‘scotch tape’ the accused police officials used to temper with the police record, but the court granted two-day remand to the ACE police.
The tempering of the record was pointed out by the top-level police team constituted by the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Punjab to investigate why the registration of the girl raping case was delayed.
As part of the investigation, the ACE’s investigating officer sought the record of Ratta police station which was reportedly tempered with by the police officials.
The three police officials were arrested on Monday by the ACE after their case was transferred to them by the local police for further proceeding.
