Following the video, police detained the DSP and his son for investigations. Police also traced the mobile vehicle used by the suspects and seized it. Police said the police mobile had been allotted two years ago to DSP Zafar Javed. Sources revealed that it was not only the DSP's son but the DSP himself was also involved in the robbery at the paan shop.

The robbery case was registered at the Gulshan-e-Iqbal police station by the paan stall owner, Shahzaib Mughal.
