RAHIM YAR KHAN - District Police Officer (DPO) Zeshan Asghar suspended a traffic police constable for allegedly stopping the son of a PML-N MNA for violating the traffic signal.

According to sources, Ahmed Imtiaz, the son of MNA Mian Imtiaz Ahmed, was on his way to Adda Khanpur on Canal Road. meanwhile, Constable Atta Muhammad signalled some vehicles, including that of Ahmed, to stop. However, he did not stop and hit the constable, but due to slow speed of the car the constable remained unhurt. Later, he misbehaved and exchanged harsh words with the constable and introduced himself as the MNA's son.

Superintendent of Police (Investigation) Shahnawaz Chachar, who was passing by with his convoy, took Ahmed to the city police station A division for registration of a case. But the MNA called the DPO and told him that Ahmed was his son and that no case be registered against him.

Ahmed was released, but the diligent constable was suspended from service and sent to police lines. PRO to DPO Zeeshan Randhawa said that the constable had been suspended for misbehaving with a citizen, Ahmed Imtiaz, and an inquiry had been initiated. Ahmed was crossing the traffic signal along with other people, he added.
