RAWALPINDI: City Police Officer DIG Faisal Rana has said that the investigation of the case registered against the police personnel involved in the murder of Mohammad Ilyas due to alleged police torture in Gujar Khan police station will be done on merit.

He added that the accused policemen under suspension involved in this case should be arrested, while the case will be investigated on merit.

The CPO reprimanded the police officers concerned and said that why the Sub Inspector, who has been suspended and is also the main accused of this case, is still at large.

No guilty person will be allowed to escape the punishment, also no innocent would be charged in this regard. The CPO expressed these views while addressing a meeting of police officers held at his camp office in connection to this case.

The police chief said that the law is the same for everyone; if a policeman breaks the law, the law will strictly take its due course against him.

Police, being a custodian of law, are intolerable to commit unlawful activity.

As soon as the written application was received from the heirs of the man killed under the alleged police torture, the case was registered immediately, he further added.

CPO Rana ordered the concerned Officers to ensure his immediate as a matter of top priority. The Saddar Division SP Rai Mazhar Iqbal assured the CPO that the suspected police Sub-Inspector would be arrested in the next 48 hours.

CPO Rana directed that, during the investigation after the arrest of the main accused, if the facilitators of the main accused also come to light, they should also be arrested.

He said that during the investigative stages of the case the plaintiff party should be satisfied in every way as to ensure them that when a policeman breaks the law his breach of the law is his solely personal act the result of which he has to bear according to the law.

Rana ordered the concerned officers to keep him informed regarding the investigation of this case daily.
