SIALKOT: District Police Officer (DPO) Abdul Ghafar Qaisrani on Sunday suspended from service three officials of the Bambaanwala Police Station for torturing four women and keeping them in illegal detention.

He took action against SHO of the police station too after video clips of the torture went viral on social media.

Assistant sub-inspectors (ASIs) Shamraiz and Tauqeer and Head Constable Tariq Khan went to village Mitraanwali-Bambaanwala in tehsil Daska and tortured four women against the bribe they had taken from the women’s rivals.

The policemen dragged and humiliated the women, bundled them into a police vehicle, took them to the police station and kept them in illegal detention for several hours.

The DPO suspended the three officials and issued a charge sheet against SHO Ashraf Gujjar. He issued orders for a probe into the charges against the police officials.

FIRDOUS: Special Assistant to Chief Minister on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan termed the budget people-friendly and a great success of the government.

Talking to the newsmen, she saluted Prime Minister Imran Khan for adopting a bold stance against the US. She repeated the government’s stance regarding the budget, saying the government had given a great gift to the masses.
