Three Karachi policemen suspended for “thrashing a civilian”

KARACHI: The Sindh police on Tuesday suspended three personnel involved in thrashing a civilian who accidentally ran into the police vehicle, a spokesperson confirmed.

The 15 Madadgar police superintendent took notice of the matter after the incident’s video went viral on social media that the three policemen were beating a helpless, unarmed motorcyclist in the Lyari Town of Karachi.

Meanwhile, an inquiry has been ordered into the matter and the officials have been removed from their charge indefinitely until further action.

Separately today (Tuesday), a district and sessions court dismissed bail pleas of three suspects in a case pertaining to the Mehran Town factory fire that killed 17 workers.

The court rejected the bail applications of premises owner Tariq Faisal, factory owner Ali Hassan and its manager Imran Zaidi.

At the previous hearing on Sept 4, the judge had extended their interim bail till Sept 7 (Tuesday). The case came up for hearing today for confirmation or otherwise of the bail. After hearing arguments from defence and prosecution sides, the court dismissed the bail pleas.
