Lahore: ASI held for harassing ex-wife
LAHORE: The Lahore High Court on Wednesday had an assistant sub–inspector (ASI) arrested for blackmailing his former wife after taking her objectionable pictures.
The petitioner lady through his counsel argued that her former husband, Maqsood, an ASI in Faisalabad, had got her objectionable pictures. She said Maqsood was harassing and blackmailing her on the pretext of the pictures. She said her former husband had also forcibly taken her 19–year–old daughter away.
ASI Maqsood, present in the court, rejected the allegations and said her former wife was deliberately targeting him.
On it, the court admonished the ASI in the strongest words and remarked that police should eliminate such black sheep from its ranks as they were bringing bad name to the department. Faisalabad Capital Police Officer, present in the court, was directed to take punitive action against the cop. The CPO arrested Maqsood in the courtroom and assured the court that stern action would be taken against the ASI.
