SIALKOT: The DPO of Sialkot, Waqar Chauhan who was allegedly involved murder of the two brothers has said he has not received any orders for his house arrest and that he is sure the inquiry panel will find out the actual facts and that he is ready to face the panel.
Earlier today, the DCO of Sialkot issued 30-day detention orders for the former DPO as part of investigation into the murder of two brothers.
Meanwhile, new footage of the brutal killing of the two brothers has been released, showing that police officials allowed the incessant torture to go on.
The footage shows that the policemen never tried to stop a group of people from beating the two brothers to death.
The policemen did not take any action even when the bodies were hanged. The bodies were then placed uncovered on the plank of a trolley which was accompanied by a police van, while it was driven through various city roads.
A police official is also seen sitting next to the driver of the trolley.
On Monday, advisor to Sindh Chief Minister Sharmila Farooqui has appealed to Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry to conduct the proceedings himself so that an exemplary punishment could be awarded to all law breakers and human rights violators.
"It is height of lawlessness and cruelty that two men were tortured to death by civilians publicly and police continued watching whole scene of tragic incident as a film," she said in a statement on Monday.
The advisor said that the notice taken by the Chief Justice of Pakistan is a laudable act but there is a need to start this trial in a speedy court because the incident has terrorised the whole society.
The perpetrators of the crime had done an inhuman act that has not only violated the teachings of religion but has also dealt a severe blow to morality and ethics, which could not be tolerated any more, she said.
She said, "The incident is very shocking for the society, which has defamed Pakistan worldwide. It is the grave violation of human rights and the country law. The culprits need to be punished severely so that no one could dare to commit such an inhuman crime."
Sharmila said that the present democratic government is committed to end any injustice in the country, adding no one would be allowed to take law into hands.
She said, "The Universal Declaration of Human Rights to which Pakistan is a signatory mandates the right to security of person. The constitution and other laws of Pakistan also forbid beating people in any case. If any one has any complaint against any person, he or she should knock the doors of the courts."
