RAWALPINDI- Additional District and Sessions (ADS) Judge Monday directed Station House Officer (SHO) Saddar Barooni Police to submit his written comments on September 19 in response to a petition filed against him for not registering a murder case. According to the details, ADS judge Ghulam Mehdi Khan directed the SHO to file his reply after Muhammad Zafar Iqbal alleged in his application under section 22-A of CrPc that police did not register a criminal case against the alleged killers of his 75-year-old father Ghulam Haider in the Adiala Jail. The petitioner had stated that his brother Muhammad Raees and his father had been undergoing 25 years imprisonment in a murder case in the jail and it was on September 4 that his brother learnt his father had been injured and been admitted in the jail hospital. Raees visited his father in the hospital where Ghulam Haider told him that Lashkar Khan, another prisoner, along with Dr Sultan of jail hospital and other staff of the jail brutally tortured him and broke his leg and arm. The petitioner said his father was shifted to district headquarter hospital (DHQ) after his condition deteriorated and he passed away on September 8 in the hospital. He alleged that he moved an application with police to register a murder case against Lashkar and the jail staff as his father was convicted in the murder of the son of Laskher's cousin and Lashkar Khan in league with jail staff tortured his father to death to avenge the killing of his nephew. Lashkar Khan had been in the jail for kidnap for ransom case and the jail hospital staff showed apathy towards the condition of his father that resulted in his dearth. He prayed to the court that his application had not been entertained by the police though he also submitted an application with city police officer (CPO) on September 11 but in vain. Meanwhile district and sessions judge (DSJ) Attaullah Kosar handed over one and half month old Umer Saqlain to his claimant mother after he was recovered by Chontra Police when a court appointed bailiff was not allowed to take the minor into custody by the grandfather of the child. Shabana Hussain through Almas Kazmi advocate had moved the court saying she was married with Saqlain Mehmood and lived happily but some days ago her husband ousted her of his house after a quarrel over a domestic issue. She alleged that Saqlain snatched the minor from her and had been giving him sleeping piles to keel him asleep. She said she was afraid about the life of her son and wanted his custody for better upbringing. The bailiff appointed for the recovery of the child in his report in the court said that the grandfather of the child along with Muhammad Rafique and Zafar Mehmood declined to hand over Umer and asked him to return.
