RAWALPINDI - Scores of office-bearers and workers of railway unions on Friday staged a protest demonstration at Rawalpindi Railway Station against the death of an employee of Railway Carriage Factory and detention of more than 100 employees a day before during a demo at IJP Road. The enraged protestors chanted slogans against the Railways department, demanded strict action against those police officials who fired bullets at innocent employees, constitution of a judicial commission to probe the matter and immediate release of detained employees. The prominent among the protestors were Prame Union President Ishtiaq Asi, Divisional Secretary Zahoor Shah, Mehnatkash Union Divisional President Younus Khatter, Bashir Khan of Railway Worker Union and Inqalabi Unions Malik Mushtaq. Addressing the infuriated protestors, Ishtiaq Asi said that Islamabad police committed heinous crime by firing bullets at peaceful Railway Carriage Factorys employees while the Railway Chairman, instead of solving the issue, remained in his office and was seeing the whole episode of barbarism of Islamabad police, he lamented. He said that the government should conduct an inquiry that who, in absence of Magistrate, gave orders to police to open fire on peaceful protestors and a case should also be registered against the responsible of the bloody incident, he added. Ishtiaq Aasi termed Railway Ministry and administration responsible for the crises, saying Pakistan Railways is defaulter of 56 billion. Railway employees were working hard for the progress of their department whereas high ups were giving the most beneficiary trains to PRACS by taking illegal gratification and commission, Aasi alleged. All the office-bearers of railway unions demanded of President Asif Ali Zardari, Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gillani and Federeal Minister for Railways Haji Ghulam Bilour to help release the salaries of poor employees before Eidul Fitr. A day before, hundreds of carriage factory workers launched a protest demo against the government for not releasing their salaries. The protestors had blocked the IJP Road and pelted public transport with stones. Later, Islamabad police rushed to the scene and resorted to firing, baton charge and teargas shelling to disperse the protestors. During a brawl Nauman, a carriage factorys employee, got critically injured owing to police firing and later died in a hospital at Islamabad.
