Karachi: ‘Killer’ policeman flees court after bail plea dismissal
KARACHI: A policeman booked for killing one of his colleagues managed to escape from the city courts soon after his plea for the confirmation of a pre–arrest bail was dismissed on Thursday. Constable Noor Alam was booked for allegedly killing another constable, Mohammad Shafiq, on May 26. Through his lawyer, the suspect had moved the pre–arrest bail application in a sessions court which had granted an interim bail to him and asked him to appear on July 5 for its confirmation or otherwise.
On Thursday additional district and sessions judge (south) Abdul Razzaq dismissed the confirmation plea after hearing arguments from both sides.
However, as soon as the judge pronounced the order, the suspect made an easy escape despite the presence of the investigating officer and other policemen.
According to the prosecution, the two constables were on duty on May 26 when Noor Alam attacked and killed Mohammad Shafiq with a hard object.
A case (FIR No 107/12) was registered against the suspect under Section 302 (punishment for premeditated murder) of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) at the Nabi Bux police station.
