‘Policeman’ manhandled in Saddar

Karachi

March 26, 2020

Despite clear directions by the Sindh government to exempt media workers and law enforcers from the lockdown restrictions, incidents of manhandling and misbehaving continued on the third day of the lockdown.

A video posted on social media on Wednesday showed a man, Hammad Ali Awan, claiming to be a head constable of the Sindh police, saying he was intercepted and manhandled by personnel performing duty in the Saddar area.

“I was intercepted and insulted although I was in police uniform,” he said and appealed to the higher authorities to keep such personnel in control. Since the lockdown began on Monday night, incidents of manhandling, especially with journalists, had been reported in the city. The officials concerned were informed about the incidents, but no action was been taken against those who were manhandling citizens.
