ISLAMABAD – The session court in federal capital, issued contempt of court notice to Station Head Officer of Margalla Police Station who refused to register a case against Jang Group owner mir Shakeelur Rehman and Amir Mir b/o Amir Mir for maligning the Pakistan security institutes.

According to the details, one plaintiff Arshad Butt had sought court orders to register the First Information Report (FIR) against Mir Shakeelur Rehman and Amir Mir but due to ‘hidden pressure’ from the government Margalla Police Station’s SHO refused to do so.

SHO Margalla Police station sent the application to police legal branch, deliberately granting time to the respondents for getting bails from arrest.

When the plaintiff, Arshad Mehmood, announced to commit suicide if police did not register his case on court orders, the police kept him in protective custody for late hours.

However, later when police released Arshad Butt from their protective custody he went to the relevant court which in return issued contempt of court notice for the SHO failing to register FIR despite court orders.

It is worth mentioning here that Geo News’ reporter Aizaz Syed arrived outside the Margalla Police Station along with his camera crew and started harassing the plaintiff asking irrelevant questions.

Aizaz Syed, the hardliner on military, asked Butt whether he was doing it on intelligence agency’s advise.
