FIR sought against Imran

24

An additional district and sessions judge on Saturday sought a reply from SHO Islampura on a petition seeking registration of FIR against Prime Minister Imran Khan for ‘threatening’ PPP’s Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari.

Petitioner Adeel Yaqoob, in his petition, contended that he approached the concerned SHO to register an FIR against the premier but the police did not cooperate as it was against the premier.

The petitioner contended that the concerned police official did not give the plaintiff a diary number and that the SHO told him to approach the high-ups for registration of an FIR. He later filed a petition in a district court seeking direction for registration of FIR against the prime minister under relevant sections.

The petitioner stated in the court that the respondent SHO was legally bound to register a case in accordance with law under the provision of Section 154 Cr.P.C and police rules, which were imperative in law, but the respondent has violated the aforesaid mandatory provisions and is entitled to be penalized and treated in accordance with the law, keeping view of his fundamental rights as enshrined in the Constitution and the law more specially envisaged in Section 154 Cr.P.C. The judge, during the hearing, sought a reply from the SHO on the petition.
