Ex-administrator Karachi who threatened cops will be brought to justice: AIG
KARACHI: Additional Inspector General of Police (AIG) Karachi Dr Amir Sheikh vowed on Wednesday to bring former administrator Karachi Fahim Zaman to justice for threatening and abusing policemen in the metropolis.
“Fahim Zamin will definitely be arrested,” he assured while speaking to ARY News.
The Karachi police chief said raids are being conducted to arrest him and added nobody is above law. Everyone will have to respect the people in uniform, he said, adding the policemen had been rewarded for controlling the situation and exercising restraint.
The city police had on March 27 booked former administrator Karachi Fahim Zaman for threatening cops in the city’s Red Zone. The incident took place when the police signalled a car to stop at the PIDC checkpost and sought identification and car papers.
Zaman who was present in the car started arguing with the police and tried to drive away. The police pulled their guns to stop him, resulting in an altercation.
The entire event was captured in a mobile phone video which went viral on social media, prompting criticism from several quarters.
In the video, Zaman can be heard undermining and abusing the on-duty officials.
“I have been the administrator of this city twice, whom do you know if you don’t know me?”, Zaman could be heard saying to one of the policemen.
A policeman can be heard saying to Zaman that [the police] was there for the safety of you [the public] to which Zaman angrily responded that they were there ‘only to prove their existence’.
Zaman also threatened the policemen that he would call Additional IGP Karachi Ameer Shaikh and complain to him.
