The police officials, who shot and injured a man and his son in the Manghopir area could not be traced, said the Manghopir police station SHO Nadeem Siddiqui.

“So far, we cannot determine from which unit the policemen who attacked Fazlul Haq’s home came,” SHO Siddiqui told the media following a protest by the residents of the area.

The family, friends and neighbours of Fazal staged a protest outside Manghopir police station and blocked the road. They demanded that the cops involved in the incident should be arrested and brought to justice.

Bilal, son of the injured Fazlul Haq, said that 14 policemen in two mobiles raided their house.

“The cops barged into our living quarters without any search warrant or lady police desecrating the sanctity of our home where purdah observing women reside,” he said.

Infuriated over police highhandedness, Fazal and his sons had a heated argument with the policemen. “During the exchange of hot words, police shot and injured my father and brother and fled,” Bilal said.

The protestors dispersed peacefully on assurance of inquiry into the matter.
