RAWALPINDI - Federal Police obtained two days physical remand of nine policemen allegedly involved in the theft of arms and ammunition, seized during Lal Masjid operation in July last year. Special Judge Central Shaukat Ali awarded the remand of nine police officials including former SHO Police Station Aabpare Malik Naeem here on Monday. Aabpara police demanded the custody of their former SHO Malik Naeem Iqbal and eight other policemen accused of stealing a heavy consignment of arms and breaching the trust of a public servant. Police registered a case against the SHO and eight other police officials under sections 380, 457, 409, 553 and 109 Pakistan Penal Court (PPC) on the complaint of their area Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) after a large cache of assault riffles, rocket launchers and anti-tank mines with thousands of bullets went missing from the basement of Aabpara police station on Saturday night. The arms were confiscated from Lal Masjid in July last year after an operation. Separately, Additional Sessions Judge (ASJ) Rana Masood Akhtar acquitted three men in the case of murdering a woman in the jurisdiction of Police Station (PS) Chontra some two years ago. The court absolved Qader, Arif and Mansoor from the charge of killing Sarwar Jan whose husband alleged that the accused raided his house in the night and shot dead his wife as he had a land dispute with them. But the court found the evidence insufficient against the accused and ordered they should be freed if not wanted in any other case.
