Team Sar-e-Aam exposes truth; becomes victim of police brutality
As Iqrar-ul-Hasan and his Sar-e-Aam team were trying to expose a corrupt ASI, officials of the SITE A police station started misbehaving with them.
In a show of violent behaviour, team Sar-e-Aam was manhandled by police officials and their cameras were also broken. Some of the cameras were snatched by the police officials as well.
Iqrar-ul-Hasan, the host of Sar-e-Aam, said whilst talking to ARY News:-
“We were just trying to expose the corrupt deeds of one ASI, when police started misbehaving. As is the case always with Sar-e-Aam, we were ready to provide evidence of the official’s misdeeds but the police would not listen. ”
Iqrar also described the ordeal his team went through.
“Our cameras were snatched and broken by the police. We were also beaten up and it was very disgraceful how they grabbed my team members by their collars and dragged them.”
Team Sar-e-Aam had uncovered a scandal in which police officials were involved in letting criminals caught with illegal arms, go scot-free in exchange for bribes.
