Around 100 PBC employees booked

ISLAMABAD - The City Police has registered a case against more than hundred employees of Radio Pakistan for staging a protest rally. According to Secretariat Police, the employees of Radio Pakistan, most of them affiliated with labor unions, staged a protest demonstration the other day by blocking the road, and made provocative speeches against the government and violated Section 144 that is imposed in the city. The Investigation Officer (IO) of the case said that an FIR had been registered against more than a hundred employees of Radio Pakistan including 37 nominated people. He said that the case was registered under section 188/186//341. Meanwhile, during a search operation, the Golra Police arrested 15 suspects who are Afghan nationals. The Police spokesman said that Golra Police conducted a search operation at Seri Saral, Shah Allah-Ditta, and Pind Sangryaal and arrested 15 suspects that were Afghan nationals. He informed that further investigation is underway. Meanwhile, a citizen was deprived of his car (Suzuki Mehran model 2004) as some unidentified burglars took his car away in the limits of the Aabpara Police Station, while an unidentified bike-lifter deprived a citizen of his motorbike in the jurisdiction of Shahzad Town Police Station. According to details, Tariq Mahmood lodged a complaint with the Aabpara police that his vehicle (Suzuki Mehran), which was parked at the parking of Alvi Auctioneer in Sector G-7, has been stolen. On this, police registered a case and started investigation in this regard. Similarly, another citizen lodged a complaint with the Shahzad Town Police Station that some unidentified bike-lifter took away his motorbike. On his complaint, the police registered a case and started investigations. It is relevant to note here that recently a number of cars have been stolen from different areas of the city. Despite tall claims of the Islamabad Police, car-lifting cases have not been controlled so far. The police is focusing on special duties while leaving citizens at the mercy of criminals. Police always remain reluctant to register cases against the car-cum-bike lifters., often making the supposedly simple process of an FIR long and complicated for the victims.
