Karachi: Registration of illegal detention case ordered against 3 cops
KARACHI: The additional district and sessions judge (West) on Friday ordered the registration of a case against three policemen of the Special Investigation Unit (SIU) for illegally detaining a son of a hotel owner and demanding a bribe from him. The owner of VIP Hotel, Nadeem, had moved an application before the judge, alleging that Inspector Shahid along with police constables Sadaqat and Imran of the SIU picked up his son Abid from Orangi Town and kept him in illegal detention at the Jamshed Town police station.
He alleged that the policemen had been demanding Rs0.2 million in bribe for releasing his son. Nadeem, however, arranged Rs25,000 and finally secured the release of his son.
The DJ West referred the application to the ADJ West who, after ascertaining the facts, issued an order for the registration of a case against the three cops for illegally detaining the citizen without any charge.
