SADIQABAD - The district police officer has ordered departmental action against a sub-inspector for constructing his house by pilfering electricity for the last five months in Ilyas Colony here. In addition, the SIs sons thrashed their neighbour for exposing the secret of pilfering electricity. Since the Rahim Yar Khan police refused the take action against SI Hasnain Ahmad Ahsan, Muhammad Chaudhry, his neighbour, submitted an application to the DPO who has ordered action against the police officer. In his application, Mr Shafiq had stated that the SI was his neighbour and he had been fulfilling his power needs by stealing electricity directly from main wires. He added the accused was repeatedly asked to abstain from doing so but he did not act upon the advice. I was thrashed by the SIs sons for disclosing the secret. I went to the City police station but the station head officer refused to take action against the cop, observed. Shafiq. He also demanded that the DPO should provide him with security and take strict action against the accused and his sons for bashing him and stealing electricity.
