Curiously, the SP Cantt didn’t trouble even to ask the DSP or the IO as to what sport they have been enjoying with the complainant. He additionally didn’t name the already terrified sufferer to see him, although the matter was introduced into his and senior officers’ discover three days again.
As per particulars, one Awais stopped his bike in entrance of a home owned by one Rehmat Ali of Sootar Mill Cease, Manawan and began honking bike horn moreover enjoying songs on his cellular phone loudly on April 19, 2020.

The household carrying Zafar with nasal fracture visited all authorities hospitals however none of them accommodated him. They have been advised that operations weren’t being carried out attributable to coronavirus. The household took the sufferer to a personal hospital on Fundamental Chowk Nakhuda at Misri Shah for therapy. The household needed to pay big therapy costs attributable to suspension of operations in authorities hospitals.
The injured Zafar remains to be in ache and never in a position to chew, converse and swallow correctly regardless of the lapse of a month. In the meantime, Manawan police registered a case (FIR No 543/20) in opposition to Awais, Javed and Khalil on April 27, 2020, following the advice of medical report underneath sections 337A (III) and 337A (I) PPC.
The investigating officer, ASI heard each events, examined the situation of the injured sufferer mendacity on the mattress with nasal fracture and swelling face, and recorded the assertion of the neighbours. Alternatively, the accused bought interim bails from the courtroom.
The accused social gathering is making the all-out effort for reconciliation with the complainant; in any other case, the courtroom might cancel their interim bails. Their all efforts for reconciliation have resulted in failure. However Punjab police know as to how such an individual who’s dedicated to hunt justice may be trapped, in order that he may withdraw his grievance or FIR.
On Might 12, the complainant, Rehmat, obtained a cellphone name that he would seem earlier than DSP Manawan Zakria Yousaf.

IO ASI once more recorded the assertion of the complainant and the accused individuals and offered them earlier than the DSP who heard each events and directed the ASI to arrest the complainant and the accused individuals underneath Part 107/ 151.

However the query is on which grounds because the complainant Rehmat has already challenged the medical reviews of the accused social gathering as effectively. And all dwelling within the locality know that the accused individuals subjected Zafar to extreme torture.
If an trustworthy officer regarded into the circumstances registered by Punjab Police underneath Part 107/ 151, he can be stunned that in a lot of the circumstances have been registered on the request of the accused social gathering. In different phrases, the sufferer who calls police, tells the main points of the incident, supplies evidences and eyewitnesses must spend an evening in lock-up with the accused. It occurs in Punjab police the place cash works and police command deliberately stays aloof.
Be it for the sake of humanity or dignity of labor, DIG Operations Punjab Sohail Sukhera took discover of police harassment within the title of investigation at a time when no different senior police officer was keen to return ahead and look into this matter dutifully.
