Karachi

August 11, 2020

A case was registered against the station house officer (SHO) of the Gadap City police station and three other cops over an extortion case on Monday at the same police station.

According to police, the case was registered against the policemen on the directives of a court. An FIR No 379/20 under the sections 384/385/34 was registered against Gadap City SHO Naimat Bhatti, ASI Shaukat Ali, Constable Naeem and a driver on the complaint of a citizen, Imran.

Police said the complainant stated in the FIR that he had bought a plot in Haji Mir Gabol Goth and started construction on it in March 2020. He added that during the construction, three of the cops visited his plot and demanded Rs15,000 in extortion to allow him to continue with the construction.

The complainant claimed that when he again started construction on his plot, the SHO came and demanded Rs250,000, and later he demanded Rs150,000, after which the complainant approached the court.

As the court ordered the registration of a case against the four cops, the additional IG Karachi suspended all of them and tasked the Special Security Unit with conducting an inquiry against them.
