KARACHI: Sindh anti-corruption court on Saturday awarded six years of imprisonment to Inspector Zulfiqar Ali Mari of anti-corruption department for falsifying documents. Mathelo Justice Iqbal Hussain heard the cases of corruption and cheating.
According to the court’s order, the inspector confessed during investigation that he was involved in falsifying documents.
Meanwhile, the anti-corruption court rejected the request for interim bail of the head of Landhi School, Mazeen Imran, accused of selling government books weighing approximately 2500 kg. However, the court confirmed the interim bail of Yasmeen, a co-accused in the case.
Imran escaped from the court room, after hearing the decision. The police personnel present at the court did not make any attempt to stop her as she made her escape good.
According to the police, Imran sold the books and later claimed that they had been stolen. Landhi SHO Sarwar Commando initially registered the case on the complaint of the school administration but when they arrested a scrap dealer they came to know the real story. The case was transferred to anti-corruption court by the police given that the accused was a government employee.
