Pak Army officers beat up the Motorways police

motorway-police-beated-by-pak-amryPESHAWAR – In what could go down as a first case of using military might on traffic wardens in Pakistan, a squad of army personnel led by a major tortured three Motorway policemen on Grand Trunk or GT Road.

Sources told Daily Pakistan that one Sub-Inspector Atif Shehzad on Sunday morning signaled an over speeding car near Nihal Pura, after being alerted by patrolling units on Peshawar-Rawalpindi highway.

Two army captains, Qasim and Danyal, came out of the car, with one of the officers having aimed his official 9mm pistol at the warden.

The situation intensified after the police officials, present at the scene, also pointed their guns at the duo considering them ‘terrorists’.

However, the armed man immediately introduced himself as an army captain, and no shots were fired.

The traffic wardens took the incident quite seriously and insisted on taking proper action against the army men – issuing a ticket for over speeding, and taking legal action for displaying arms publicly, let alone pointing a gun at a policeman.

On the other hand, the army officers while executing their own ‘plan of action’ called up the nearest cantonment for reinforcement. That brought Major Zaarfran and his half-a-dozen men squad to the scene.

The army commandos dragged the traffic wardens, SI Atif Shehza, SI Mohsin and Constable Jalal Shah, into an army SUV and took them away to an unknown location – possibly the nearest army station, Akora Khattak.

The whole episode triggered panic among the passers-by, while the Motorways and Highways police calling their high-ups for intervention.

Luckily, the three cops were released after few hours. Unluckily, they were seriously injured after being subjected to torture by the army personnel during their enforced stay at military station.

The wardens were later taken to district headquarters hospital in Nowshera.

The Motorways police have lodged a written complaint with Akora Khattak police station against the army officers.

In a tweet on Monday, Pakistan Army’s Inter Service Public Relations wing said the matter was being inquired.

“Law will take its course in disposing of the case and justice will be done,” according to an army spokesperson.

Akora Khattak is a city along the Grand Trunk Road, in the Nowshera District, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. It is also the birthplace of famous Puhsto poet Khushal Khan Khattak.-DP

  1. Their court Martial must take place as historically they always use unlawful force and Attock fort for giving tortures to innocent vulnerable victims, they were doing same actions in Bangla Desh, and same they are doing in SWAT and Waziristan.
    We are all surprised that How they can take law in their own hands by kidnapping arresting and then torturing them unlawfully another uniformed force on public duties.
    our present Prime Minister Nawaz sharif is also one of the victims of the Attock torture cell so he should take action and these rogues court Martial must take place.
    Motorway police is efficient honest professional force who is always helpful and keeping our roads safe and they don’t deserve such treatment from the uniformed bullies who are all well know in the West and have got Nick name as Rogue ARMY of Pakistan.
    I will never forget when my UK Trained doctor wife was driving in Quetta cantt very carefully and accidentally slightly touched the bumper of one major’s old banger car who resorted to threatening violence and snatched two Thousand rupees from her but he was lucky to get away with it and gone before her brothers and guards arrived with AK47-
    The Army training needs to make them understand in KakuL before they come out on the roads teaches them there how to behave in public.
    I am certainly not against army as I myself have been in the uniformed forces in Pakistan and in the UK having numerous close family members in the Pak Army.
    I will be the first one to protect and support Pak Army and will never hesitate to sacrifice my life for them and for my Country but I hate such unlawful actions of these arrogant bullies who behave like this in public with respectable ladies and with other uniformed sister agencies on official duties protecting public,dr_fskhan@yahool.co.uk
