LAHORE - Every Station House Officer (SHO) is himself a Inspector General of his police station, as he knows better about the happenings in his area. Even IG Punjab is bound to follow my findings regarding any case registered at my police station. Mozang SHO Sub-Inspector Khalid Farooq allegedly expressed these views when a complainant Mian Muhammad Ishtiaq, resident of Mozang and president of Optical Market, approached him to get register an FIR against two unidentified accused who opened two bullet fires at him at about 9:15pm on August 11, 2010 According to an application (688-5) submitted to SHO, two unidentified accused fired two bullets on him when he was working at his shop located at Safanwala Chowk. The complainant further suspected that Atta Ullah Qureshi, son of Ahmed Ullah Qureshi, resident of Mustafabad, may behind this firing incident as the complainant had filed a suit for illegal despoliation against Qureshi. I guess these accused hired criminals as they had already attempted despoliation in 2008, he maintained in his application. According to the victim, despite the SHO collected bullets covers from the crime scene, he flatly refused to register an FIR against them. Meanwhile, the victim approached the Lahore High Court to seek justice over which the Additional Sessions Judge Mehar Muhammad Yousuf directed the SHO to register a criminal case against the proposed accused but to no avail. Isthiaq quoted the SHO as saying, What can you do. Go and again proceed to CM, IG, DIG, SSP and SP but remember they will initiate action on the directions forwarded by me. SHO Khalid Farooq said he had moved his findings to the court when contacted. He said only one accused opened fire outside the shop. When asked from where he collected the bullets covers, he replied from road. But according to victim, the SHO collected these covers from a cabin located inside the shop. The incident has been reported time and again in media but I cannot register an FIR against a person sitting in UK, he remarked. He further said one couldnt deny court orders but only factual situation would be followed in the said case.
