Rawalpindi - Showing dissatisfaction over police investigators of Saddar circle, the former senior clerk of Adiala Jail has requested the city police officer (CPO) to get his case probed from Range Investigation Bureau (RIB) to fix the attackers who fractured his leg in December 2014 by firing bullets.

CPO Israr Ahmed Khan Abbasi taking action on the request summoned case record from high-ups of Saddar circle, reliable sources told The Nation here on Wednesday.

Syed Nazim Hussain Shah had got registered an attempted murder case with police station Saddar Bairooni against IG Prisons Mian Farooq Nazir and Superintendent Adiala Jail Malik Mushtaq Ahmed Awan while accusing them of sending the attackers to kill him for highlighting their (top cops) alleged massive corruption.

According to sources, Syed Nazim Shah appeared before CPO Israr Ahmed Khan Abbasi and tabled an application stating that he has no confidence in the investigators of Saddar circle including Investigation Officer (IO) Malik Asif, as all were allegedly taking side of the accused. He said that despite passage of many months, not a single accused was arrested or grilled. He added that the IO recovered the vehicle (Toyota Corolla SX-829) used by the attackers in June 2015 but later the showroom owner took it back through court. “It was clearly established that the car was obtained by one Hashim alias Hashu, the front man of a notorious land grabber who was languishing in Adiala Jail in a woman murder case, but no action was taken against him, he mentioned in the application.

The applicant appealed to the CPO to get back the investigation of case from Saddar Circle high-ups and assign it to some competent and honest officer in RIB, sources added. Taking action, CPO Israr Ahmed summoned case record from Saddar Circle DSP for further action.

In-charge CPO Office Complaint Cell Inspector Malik Naheem, when contacted, confirmed that Nazim submitted an application (diary number 3210/22/7/15) with CPO seeking change in investigation in an attempted murder case against the top cops of Punjab prisons department.
