2 policemen suspended for using abusive language against citizen in KarachiPakistan
Sindh Police on Monday suspended two police officials for using abusive language against a citizen who was reportedly taking pictures of a police protocol on Shahrah-i-Faisal, Karachi main thoroughfare, officials told Dawn.
Superintendent of police (SP) of the Security-I division Malik Ehsan confirmed to Dawn that the officials have been suspended for abusive behaviour. He also said that the suspended officers belonged to Security-I.
The police, however, did not provide the name of the senior government official who the squad was providing security to.
The video of the incident, that has gone on viral on social media, shows the policemen misbehaving with a citizen over making a video of the security squad. It also caught the attention of Inspector General of Police (IGP) Sindh, A.D Khowaja, who ordered an inquiry.
The IGP appointed Ehsan as the inquiry officer and directed him to conduct a thorough probe and submit a detailed report of the incident, a police spokesperson said.
The officer said that the police were trying to trace the citizen, who was driving by in a car when he came by the security squad, to record his statement but he disappeared after the incident.
