Residents protest against Rizvia SHO for illegally detaining citizen

Karachi

May 29, 2020

A large number of residents of Kashmir Colony in Rizvia Society staged a protest outside the Rizvia police station on Thursday, alleging the involvement of the station house officer (SHO) in illegally detaining a citizen and registering a fake case against him.

Women and children were among the protesters, who charged that the police on the night between Wednesday and Thursday had raided Kashmir Colony, taken Abid Kashmiri into custody and shifted him to an undisclosed location for hours before registering a fake case against him.

The protesters claimed that Rizvia SHO Muzaffar Ali Siddiqui was involved in illegally detaining and registering a fake case against Kashmiri. They demanded of senior police officials to take notice of the incident and order suspension of the SHO.

On the other hand, the SHO denied all the allegations and said the suspect arrested was a drug dealer and had been arrested thrice in the past. He said further investigations are underway.

Woman’s body found

The bodies of a woman and a man were found in different areas of the city on Thursday. The Azizabad police found the body of a woman on the fourth floor of a residential building in Karimabad.

Rescuers reached the scene and transported the dead to Abbasi Shaheed Hospital for medico-legal formalities where she was identified as 28-year-old Shaista, wife of Zaman.

According to SHO Haji Sanaullah, the mother of two apparently ended her life by hanging herself from a ceiling fan over a family dispute. The police were said to be investigating the case from different angles.

Separately, the body of a man was discovered near the Hub Dam in the Surjani Town police remits. Rescuers reached the scene and transported the body to Abbasi Shaheed Hospital for an autopsy and later shifted it to a morgue for identification. The police said the man apparently drowned to death while bathing.
