Profile: For Karachi’s mean streets, Chaudhry Aslam is a meaner cop

Published: September 20, 2011

Rehman Dakait, Shoaib Khan and Saulat Mirza are the few acts the SSP cleaned up.

KARACHI: There is only one officer who has the undisputed reputation of being the Sultan Rahi of the Sindh police force and that is Chaudhry Aslam Khan.

The man, dressed as always in his starched white shalwar kameez with open front buttons and a flashy watch, Aslam proved once again on Monday that no one can faze him.

Eyewitnesses say that after the explosion, when a black cloud engulfed the entire neighbourhood, it was Aslam himself who got out first from his bungalow to pick up the dead and injured.

At the time of the attack, Aslam, his wife and children were at home. Even though the front of the house was blown away, luckily, all of his family members escaped serious injuries.

The 50-year-old had only one message for the terrorists who destroyed his home. “I will bury the attackers in the same place here,” he said as he pointed to the 8 by 6 foot crater. “I will not step back. I will carry on with my jihad [against the terrorists] until the day of judgement.”

It has been a long journey for the chain-smoking officer, who rose from the low-ranking position of an assistant sub-inspector to his current rank of senior superintendent of police. Although Aslam didn’t clear the CSS examination that would have made him a prestigious PSP officer, he was promoted each time because he managed to catch the big fish.

Aslam joined the force in 1987. He became the inspector and station house officer for the Kalakot police station in 1991 and then SHO for Gulbahar in 1994. He is one of the few officers left alive among those who participated in the infamous clean-up operation against the Muttahida Qaumi Movement in the 1990s.

In fact, his promotion to deputy superintendent of police (DSP) in 1999 came after he caught the notorious hitman of a major political party, Saulat Mirza, who was convicted of murdering the then managing director of KESC, Shahid Hamid.

In 2005, he was promoted from DSP to superintendent of police after he arrested underworld don Shoaib Khan. As an SP, he headed the Lyari Task Force and went head on to clamp down on the mafia run by Lyari gangsters Rehman Dakait and Arshad Pappu. Dakait was eventually killed in an encounter by a police team headed by Aslam in 2010.

His first assignment with the Crime Investigation Department came between August 2008 and May 2009, when he headed the investigation wing at Civil Lines. (The Civil Lines office was wrecked in a massive car and bomb attack in November 2010.) Aslam rejoined the CID as head of the Counter Terrorism Unit and as chief of the Anti-Extremism Cell in July 2010, a post that he maintains to this day at his office in Garden.

Due to the nature of Aslam’s work, his enemies today are as countless and varied as the techniques he’s used to nab them. They range from the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi to drug-runners in Lyari and militants belonging to major political parties. In fact, this is not the first time that Aslam has survived an assassination attempt. In January 2006, gunmen associated with a major political party attacked Aslam in Defence’s Gizri.

Aslam’s career too has been rife with controversy, the most infamous case of which was that of Rasool Baksh Brohi. In fact, Aslam was sent to Central jail between July 2006 and December 2007 for allegedly killing the man in a fake encounter. While Aslam maintained that Brohi was a criminal wanted in numerous cases, the SSP was accused of killing an innocent man mistaken for notorious criminal Mashooq Brohi. The Supreme Court acquitted Aslam of all charges.

Chaudhry is a decorated grade 18 officer and his achievements include a Pakistan Police Medal, Qauid-e-Azam Police Medal and the Tamgha-i-Imtiaz awarded by the president on March 23 this year. Senior police officer Omar Shahid, who until recently was working with Aslam at the CID before leaving for London on an assignment, said one had to admire the merit of people like Aslam. “If he hadn’t done some big things, the terrorists wouldn’t be after him, now would they?”

    Killing of Rehman Dakait has become controversial after Zulfiqar Mirza’s statements. Why we admire policemen who kill people in encounters. Their job is to bring them to court. Why he is sitting on news channels toeing American line of pointing every finger towards Waziristan where America wants to operate militarily these days. Everyone should do his duty honestly and that is enough. We are in a very bad law and order situation, still some people want to be known as Sultan Rahi or a hero

    “While Aslam maintained that Brohi was a criminal wanted in numerous cases” . How that justifies a FAKE encounter. He is also known for torturing “Suspects” not proven guilty yet. He is a typical Pakistani cop, who employs tourture and extra juditial killings. I can guarantee not all he killed in encouters and tortured were criminals. Two wrongs do not make a right. Our streets and innocent people are not any safer because of him. We need some modern technology for investigation and a fair and efficient justice system.

Some say he is corrupt and some even go further.

    Apart from endangering citizens of Karachi this Chaudhry has amassed a big wealth from himself. The salary package for 18 Grade officer by no means can sustain an extravagant life style in Phase 8 DHA. Mr. Chaudhry has done quite spme business being the SHO police in the last 2 decades. Policemen should live in the POLICE QUARTERS that are allotted to them by the Government and not give them on rent and choose to live in Residential areas endangering the lives of innocent people. I think that is why the Hawksbay SHO chooses to live in his Police station to protect his family from such dangerous criminals.

    No doubt Chaudhry sahab has won many medals and held many criminals back, but isn’t that his job too? I mean, you and me are not supposed to throw criminals in jails and stage fake encounters. Now we find one Police officer doing his duty and we are all gaga about him. What about all the Thaanaas which are sold for each posting.

    Dear Readers,

    Let me shed some light on how an SSP or a grade 18 officer can live in defence. You people have no idea about his background, yet have started pointing fingers at him. He may belong to a well off family, he may have gotten monetary awards from the government for the big fish he caught, you dont even know if he owns the house or it has been rented by him. Please dont jump to conclusions. Last but not the least, the govt is obligated to provide residences to its officials. When there are no govt houses available, the government then rents out private establishments and provides shelter to its officers, so it might be a govt. provided accommodation. Could be for security reasons.

    And if you dare to speak against Ch. Aslam, you must also dare to speak against other officers of defence forces.

    All i say is that we must not jump the gun. We must give him a fair chance! He has put his and his family’s life on the line for your safety.Recommend

Not because he’s corrupt but because he had and has agricultural lands and has been wisely investing the income from that in small businesses that complement his government salary. We need to realize the gravity of the situation and not question (at least at this moment) the integrity of an officer who had a 300 kilogram bomb detonated outside his house’s gate.

    TTP terrorists are planning to capture areas again like what happened in Swat, our judicial system is weak they evict terrorists, we need brave officers like him who has courage to fight with terrorists and finish them, he is BEST in worst conditions.

    So one reads that the ‘Sultan Rahi of the Sindh police force’ has been involved in the extra-judicial murder of criminals and cases of torture in the thanas. Sadly it sums up the miserable state of our country where it now takes a ‘criminal’ to fix worse criminals. No, I won’t eulogise this man, instead I’ll shed a few more tears for the innocent dead and the utter mess that has been made of Karachi and the rest of the Pakistan.

    Lets do some math…..For the sake of the arguments…… suppose he is working as SSP for last 30 years(The fast track promotion came last 4 yers back without PSP exam) .The base salary for SSP position is RS.16835 per month with TA DA and All Allowances just add another extra Rs7000..The Total salary comes up Rs 23835. Now do the simple Math.. Yearly Salary….. will be Rs 286020….. Let do this, if he and his whole family dont eat and dont spend any single Rupees and just save for 30 years. The Total comes up around 85 Lakhs… The plot he has a registry for 4 years back … (Please check with DHA registration the book value at that time was 110 lakh) .
    So the Questions Are:-
    1- How he made that kind of money?
    2- May be Winning a Lottery (It is illegal in Pakistan)
    3- I am not sure he belongs to any landlord or a rich family……(Please Ask him his previous residence hyderabad, then chawkiwada Police lines Flat!!!!)?
    4. Is he a friend of Pakistani President?
    ……………………………….Jagtay Rahoooooo warna ………………..

    I can only admire the majority of people who praise SSP Aslam, unfortunately I belong to the nation who in majority admire such a terrorist in uniform. You can understand his mischievious activities behind his promotions.

    I never comment on blogs but here I feel compelled. Almost all the cops in our country(yes unfortunately 99.99%) are ‘corrupt’ and ‘inefficient’ ,but how so amazing that we don’t recognize the fact that this (‘corrupt’) person has endangered the life of his family members for ‘us’. He is living in a posh house and this means that the terrorist whom he arrested are good people as they killed innocent children and passers by (while trying to eliminate this corrupt man)???? What more was he demanding some money from terrorists for some kind of ,let’s say interior decoration at his ‘posh’ bunglow??? No man. He was doing some risky tasks for this nation state. That’s the point. So a big round of applause is what needed at this point and not his fiscal audit.

    How come this guy afford living in DHA? How come he killed an innocent citizen by mistake? How come he says he will burry those who committed this sin in the same ditch created in front of his house? How come he was declared as a criminal and then resumed his services? How come he promoted to higer positions without the required qualification? too many questions….. No answers because, majority of this police department is curropted. These curropted policemen should be killed with no mercy on street. PERIOD

    @TightDhoti: There are two questions that you bring up: I will answer them one by one.
    Firstly, he affords a house in DHA. How? Well, do you know of his family background? Maybe he is from a rich background so he can afford this house? or maybe he has a side business? What do we know – nothing.
    Secondly, why doesn’t he wear uniform? After reading this article and getting to know all his sacrifices and achievements, if this is your complain then i guess that’s very sad. Rather than saluting this brave officer for sacrificing his life and his family for the peace of Karachi, we are here complaining why doesn’t he wear uniform. It’s not the uniform that matters, it’s the man behind that uniform that counts.
    We as a nation should celebrate our heroes who are defending our nation against evil and crime. This includes both army and police!

    For the love of God, HE IS SSP CID, WHICH OPERATES COVERTLY AND DOES NOT REQUIRE A UNIFORM TO BE WORN. SPECIAL BRANCH, CIA and the CID do not wear uniforms.

    i wonder if he is that brave, why did he shifted to a secured place like navy housing scheme at karsaz, which costed him around 3 crore PKR!?! plus how did he managed to raise so much amount of money? not to mention the grand cruiser, hilux turbo (2x), carollas (2x) and city (2x)? :s
