Karachi [Pakistan], 10 November (ANI): Police on Monday submitted the indictment sheet to a local court, where they charged the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Safdar Awan with violating the sanctity of Mohammad Ali Jinnah’s mausoleum in Karachi. , as a fake.
The investigative report concluded that neither the plaintiff, Waqas Khan, nephew of Pakistani leader Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Haleem Adil Sheikh, joined in the investigation and the veracity of his claim was not established during the investigation, indicating that he was not present. in the mausoleum when the alleged breach occurred, reports Dawn.
Previously, police had “arrested” Safdar Awan, son-in-law of former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, from the hotel where he was staying in Karachi, hours after PML-N vice president Maryam Nawaz lashed out at Imran Khan and his government during the PDM’s second show of force.
He is given a judge’s court bail with a bail of Rs 100,000. According to FIR, Awan, his wife Nawaz, and a group of his supporters violated the sanctity of Quaid’s tomb by making a fuss and chanting fiery political slogans inside.
They are also accused of bullying people, reports Dawn.
Previous prosecutions have demonstrated a discrepancy in previous indictment sheets, noting that investigating officers neglected to record statements from available independent witnesses at the place where the alleged violations took place.
It said the officer failed to get the necessary approval from his senior official before submitting the indictment sheet and he did not attach complaints transferred by the mausoleum council administration officer or record his statements.
However, the prosecution then approved a new amended indictment sheet, in which it said that the offense would be tried under the Mazar Quaid-i-Azam (Protection and Maintenance) Ordinance, 1971, if the same complaint was forwarded through the SHO regarding the application of the mausoleum administrator.
On the application of the Criminal Code of Pakistan, it said: “We are from [the] the firm opinion that despite the efforts of IO, [the] the complainant failed to join the investigation and preparation of the site inspection memo. There were also no reporters on the date and time determined by the CCTV and CDR recordings collected by IO. “
PML-N leaders and spokesmen Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz and former Sindh governor Muhammad Zubair said that Sindh IGP, Mushtaq Mehr, was ‘kidnapped’ by Rangers who forced him to apply for an FIR for Safdar’s arrest.
The development generated extreme bitterness among police officers who retaliated by applying for leave. (ANI)
