RAWALPINDI - City Police Officer (CPO) Bilal Siddique Kamyana Saturday ordered departmental inquiry against a traffic warden deputed at Kahuta Circle on charges of receiving bribe from a citizen for setting his vehicles free.

CPO issued this direction at an open katcheri he held at TMA Hall, within the limits of Police Station (PS) Kallar Syedan here on Saturday.

A citizen Muhammad Yasin appeared before the CPO and presented an application in which he stated that a traffic warden sopped his vehicle and demanded Rs1,000 to set it free. He said that he paid the amount to warden but despite of that warden issued him fine ticket. The CPO, taking notice, asked ASP Kahuta to hold a detail inquiry into the matter and submit a report with his office within three days.

A large number of people of Kallay Syedan tabled a pile of applications before CPO, stating that the city district government banned the entry of Suzuki in the area while shifted all the bus terminals out from the area owing to which the people are facing problems. The CPO directed the authorities concerned to negotiate with the assistant commissioner of the area and find out some suitable solution of the problem.
