Policemen suspended over ‘fake’ encounter in Gulshan-e-Maymar

KARACHI: Two police officers among four policemen were suspended for allegedly conducting a fake police encounter in the outskirt of a city.

The four policemen were accused of killing a young man, namely Ashraf Rind in Gulshan-e-Maymar area on Thursday. The police high officials took swift action and suspended the four policemen after the family of a deceased Rind staged a protest against the 'extrajudicial killing' of their loved one. Police's sub-inspector Qaiser Khoso, one ASI and two constables were among the suspended cops.

The family had accused that Rind had reached Karachi about four months ago from Dubai following his mother's death. They claim that the deceased was returning to home after a Qawwali programme arranged by someone in Gulshan-e-Maymar when the suspended policemen intercepted him and killed him in a fake encounter.

The family also warned that they would not bury the deceased until they get justice while the deceased's body has been kept in Edhi morgue in Sohrab Goth. Police officials have informed that an inquiry has been initiated against the suspended officials and they would be booked in a murder case if they are found guilty.
