According to details a man was mishandled and brultally tortured by police at an unknown place. After the news came into light the Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Chaudhry Shafeeq Gujjar ordered an inquiry into allegations that a Sattukatla police officer has been running a private torture cell.
The CCPO instructed Saddar Investigation Superintendent of Police SP Jehanzeb Khan to investigate.
Khan said that policemen found to have detained the suspect at a private location and tortured him would be punished. The SP suspended another SI in charge of an investigation wing a month ago for abuse of authority.
Sattukatla policemen said that they did not know the whereabouts and the current whereabouts and identity of the suspect are unknown.
A source at the office of the deputy inspector general (DIG) for Operations said, while talking about a controversial person having bad name, that Awan had been reprimanded and dismissed from service six years ago by the then Lahore DIG and then IG Tariq Saleem Dogar for harassing a woman and dispossessing her of her property. He was deputed at Shadman police station at the time. Awan was later reinstated after he filed an application of apology.
Inspector General of Punjab Police Khan Baig also took notice of the incident and ordered senior police officials to make sure that officers posted to lead operations and investigation wings have clean service records.
