15 December, 2013
KARACHI: Sindh High Court (SHC) on Saturday restrained Sindh police from harassing the residents of Bakhtawar Goth, Bin Qasim Town.
It directed the deputy commissioner and SSP Malir and SHOs of Quaidabad and Sukkan police stations to submit comments on a petition filed by Hassan Gul and other residents of Bakhtawar Goth.
The petitioners told the court that they lived in Goth for the last 10 years and their houses were built on the land duly regularised by the Sindh government under Gothabad scheme.
They alleged that police officials belonging to Quaidabad and Sukkan were demanding Rs 10,000 as bribe, as well as threatening to demolish their houses upon refusal. They appealed the court to restrain police from harassing them.
