LAHORE - Proceeding suo moto on the last weeks fake police encounter in Nishtar Town, Lahore High Court Chief Justice Ijaz Ahmad Chaudhry on Tuesday directed the police authorities to produce a complete list of encounters so far held over the year along with details of the deaths and the background of the slain. Taking a very serious notice of the Nishtar Town fake encounter which claimed the life of youth Shahbaz Butt, the LHC Chief Justice warned the top provincial cops against creating panic and sense of insecurity amongst the public through their statement or any other manner whatsoever. The CJ said that the court would not let Punjab become Kharotabad or Karachi where security persons killed innocent people and later tried to colour the extra-judicial killings as encounters. Following the court order, Punjab Chief Secretary Nasir Mahmood Khan Khosa appeared and gave assurance to the court that its directions would be carried out in letter and spirit. He said every effort would be made to ensure the rule of law and the constitution and next time no Nishtar Town-like incident would happen. He said that DIG Ali Amir Malik is himself conduction investigations after registration of the FIR. At this stage, the court posed a query, why the DIG and the CCPO, in this context, passed statements which created a sense of insecurity amongst the citizens and sent a wave of concern about their security. In what perspective the top cops gave this impression through their statements, should also be taken note of, said the LHC CJ. The CJ said that the Karachi killing at the hand of Rangers personnel has caused concern throughout the country. Such incidents need to be strictly checked. Punjab must think not to let these acts be committed in the province, the court said, adding Punjab would not let be made Karachi or Kharotabad. The Punjab Inspector General (IG) and the Home Secretary also attended the court on call. The Chief Justice remarked the Punjab government needs to protect the lives of citizens. The court directed the authorities concerned to complete investigations of the Nishtar Town incident within 15 days and present a comprehensive report on the next date of hearing, on June 30. The CJ also passed a direction to the lower court to decide the case within 30 days after presentation of the challan. The LHC directed the provincial authorities to evolve an effective system and constitute a commission comprising officers of integrity to prevent fake police encounters. The court said the members of the commission can regularly meet and also hear the legal heirs of those whose dear ones got killed in police encounters. The court observed that the police cannot be given a free hand or a licence to kill the people at will. The people are living in insecurity and their fears about the police are not unfounded or baseless. The police department must have officers who inspire confidence and a sense of security in the citizens so that they live peacefully, the court added. The court was informed by the officers concerned that the DSP Nishtar Colony and four police officials have been booked on the charges of killing a citizen in a fake encounter. The FIR also contains section 7 of the Anti-Terrorism Act besides others of the PPC (Pakistan Penal Code). It was told to the court that investigation of the case is going on in a fair and transparent manner. Sub-Inspector Riaz and constables Abdul Qadir and Muhammad Asif are the other accused. It may be recalled the LHC moved to exercise suo moto authority Saturday on a media report that police killed a youth in a fake encounter after he was handed over to them by the citizens following an abortive robbery by him and two others. The preliminary inquiry conducted by DIG Major Mubashir has found the encounter fake as Shahbaz was killed by close-range fires.
