06 May, 2016
ISLAMABAD: A local court of Islamabad issued arrest warrants of former chairman Senate of Pakistan Nayyar Bukhari and his son Jarar Shah on Thursday after they had allegedly thrashed an on-duty policeman at the entry gate of F-8 Kachehri.
On Wednesday, the incumbent senator and a senior Pakistan People Party leader, Nayyar Bukhari had slapped a policeman for searching him before entering capital’s F-8 court.
The Margala Police registered an FIR against the former custodian of senate under sections 353/506/186/34 PPC, soon after the incident, on the complaint of Muhammad Riaz, head constable, Special Branch, Islamabad, who was deployed at the entry point. Riaz has accused the senator of public humiliating him, followed by a physical assault. Meanwhile, capital’s Inspector General (IG), Tariq Masood Yasin, had also issued orders to arrest the senator. When asked, police sources verified the man who had thrashed an on-duty police officer as Bukhari’s son Jarar. They also negated the involvement of his bodyguard in this regard. Bukhari had earlier claimed that neither he nor his aides had attacked any policeman.
Nevertheless, the CCTV footage shows a counter likewise version of the incident, where Bukhari was first seen as insulting the security person, who was then attacked by his son.
