LAHORE The media men were kicked out from outside the office of Punjab Inspector General of Police Javed Iqbal on Saturday noon when they reached there to cover the first open court of the IGP which was not held by him. Police officers deployed outside the IG Office also threatened the journalists to avoid visiting the office of top police cop as they were uninvited guests. After being meted out in such way the media men staged a protest demonstration in front of Old Anarkali police station near Punjab Revenue Board and chanted slogans against the police officers. The journalists opined this was an open court in which public, media men, representatives of civil society and every citizen was entitled to participate. They said during the tenure of a former IGP Tariq Saleem Dogar the journalists used to visit such open courts and personally observed the miserable situation of the victimized masses. They media men also pledged to boycott the coverage of IGP if they were again treated like this. Newly-appointed Director Public Relations (DPR) in Central Police Office (CPO) Nabeela Ghazanfar said she had personally excused the annoyed journalists, adding she would ensure comprehensive arrangements in this regards besides initiating tangible actions against the responsible police personnel. Meanwhile, Personal Staff Officer (PSO) to IGP SSP Shahzad Sultan held the open court in which more than 40 victims belonging to different districts of the province submitted their applications and complained against the police officers concerned. Interestingly, reliable sources claimed that a couple of people including a female student Amna Hussain of Matriculation hailing from Chiniot complained against Shahzad Sultan himself alleging the accused who victimized her of gang rape was being patronised by him. They said according to the application she was kidnapped and later victimised to gang rape, which was also proved when two inspectors Ishtiaq Rasool and Muhammad Afzal thoroughly investigated the incident. Instead of providing her justice, a DSP Riaz Chadhar, deputed at Crime Branch Lahore, allegedly prepared a bogus report and was still patronising the accused.
