FIR lodged against PPP leader

Amanullah Mehsud over celebratory firing

By our correspondent

The Darakhshan police registered a case on Monday against Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Amanullah Mehsud for resorting to aerial firing publically to celebrate Pakistan’s win over India in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy.  The FIR was lodged against Mehsud under sections 341 and 337 H-II on behalf of the state.  Clifton SP Dr Assad Malhi told The News that Mehsud was taken into its custody after footage of him firing into the air appeared on different TV channels. Police also seized the weapon used in the firing.  Responding to a question, Dr Malhi said they were tracing the police mobile that drove past Mehsud but took no action against him. However, he was already certain that the mobile was not in use of any police station.  The SP said the mobile van seen in the footage may be in the use of anyone’s security protocol, but he insisted that he would make final remarks after the completion of the investigation.

Bail of two cops recalled

The SHC recalled the interim pre-arrest bail of two senior police officers in a Rs50 million corruption case.  Former AIG Logistics Tanveer Ahmed and former AIG Finance Syed Fida Hussain Shah have been accused of misappropriating funds worth Rs50 million released to pay fuel charges and make special security arrangements for Muharram.  The petitioner’s counsel submitted that their clients were willing to submit the amount mentioned in the reference before the court’s Nazir till the trial court took a decision.  The court, however, rejected the request of the petitioners and recalled their interim pre-arrest bails.
