PSB official booked for ‘abusing’ headmistress

March 12, 2013

RAWALPINDI, March 12: After the senior headmistress of a girls’ school filed an FIR against a senior deputy director of the Pakistan Sports Board (PSB), Pirwadhai police registered a criminal charge.

Chaudhry Salamat has been accused of forcibly entering a girls’ school, using “abusive language” against its headmistress, and obstructing the work of a government functionary.

The PSB Deputy Director, Chaudhry Salamat, forced his way into Government Girls High School Khayaban-i-Sir Syed in order to collect his wife, a teacher; the couple had “to go somewhere”.

According to the headmistress, Roohi Yasmeen, “I was chairing a meeting of my staff when he broke into the meeting room.”

Because of the matriculation exams, Yasmeen would not allow Chaudhry Salamat’s wife to leave with him.

“He started shouting at me, using abusive language,” Yasmeen said, adding that “he even threatened to break my legs before he took his wife with him by force.”

According to Pirwadhai inspector Khan Shabir, Yasmeen’s FIR adds that when a security guard initially tried to keep Chaudhry Salamat out of the building, since the entry of men is restricted, the PSB deputy director slapped him. — Mohammad Asghar
