Four police officials sacked in Amir Tehkal torture case
PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police have sacked four police officials, two SHOs and two their subordinates, in Amir Tehkal torture case.
Police sources said that in light of the judicial commission report the crime was proved in departmental inquiry. Those who have been fired include former SHO Tehkal city Sheher Yar, former SHO Yakatoor Imranuddin and two constables Naeem and Toseef Alam, said the sources.
KP Inspector General Dr Sanaullah Abbasi sadi that the process of accountability was ongoing in police and whoever would take the law into hands would be brought to justice.
He said police were a force and there was no place in the police for those who defamed the department, said Dr. Sanaullah Abbasi. He said KP police had made great sacrifices.
“All officers, including me, are on duty 24 hours a day to restore confidence in the public,” he said.
In June the following year, police paraded Amir naked and tortured him for abusing the law enforcers on social media.
Fatigued by joblessness, some youth had reportedly shared a video in which they abused police force. In reaction, the station house officer of Peshawar’s Tehkal police station had arrested one of them, Amir, stripped him, tortured him and then made his video before posting it on social media.
Police officials embroiled in this act have been removed from their posts for adopting illegal and unconstitutional manner in dealing with the citizens.
