Peshawar SHO caught red handed – involves in various criminal activities Exclusive video.
Peshawar: In a shocking revelation, it has emerged on Thursday that an ordinary police constable in Peshawar has become a billionaire, possessing four bungalows and a dozen expensive vehicles.
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB), Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on Tuesday informed the Peshawar High Court (PHC) that it had frozen immovable properties and assets of the former station house officer (SHO) of the Hayatabad Police Station, Rajab Ali worth millions of rupees allegedly acquired through illegal means.
His frozen immovable prosperities and assets include land measuring 32 kanals and 46 marlas in Chinarabad in Taxila, one kanal plot in Thatta Khalil village in Taxila in Rawalpindi and 15 marlas in Lala Killay in Peshawar.
The report said that land measuring two kanals was purchased by Rajab Ali and his brothers, Shaban Ali and Safar Ali in Taxila in 2008 at the rate of Rs30, 000 per marla. The 32 kanals were purchased by Rajab Ali along with other persons at Thatta Khalil in Taxila for Rs3,50,000 per kanal. His share is four kanals on which a house is under construction and is valued at Rs6.56 million but the estimated cost on completion would be Rs13.12 million. Police inspector Rajab Ali also purchased 15 marlas plot in Lala Killay in Peshawar worth Rs7, 96, 785.
The DG NAB sought some time to produce complete record of bank accounts of the police officer. The report stated that Rajab Ali is allegedly the sleeping partner in rent-a-car business with one Shahadat Noor and the firm is named Peshawar Rent a Car. It alleged that Rajab Ali handed over illegally siezed cars for business to this firm and the owners of the Classic Motors and Nazar and Brothers Car Rentals. However, the owners of the rent a car businesses said they had good relations with the police officer, but never shared any business with him.
About the torture cells, the report said the NAB examined detainee Muhammad Shafiq, who confirmed paying Rs7,30,000 to SHO Rajab Ali and other officials of the Hayatabad Police Station after undergoing severe torture. Another detainee Sabit Khan said he was kept in illegal detention for two months and released after paying Rs3, 00,000 as bribe. The report said Asghar Khan was also illegally detained and released after paying Rs10 million.
It was also stated that five mobile phones and seven SIMs were in the use of Rajab Ali. Constables Asif, Habib Gul, Said Ahmed, Maroof, Raees and ASI Rahat posted at the Hayatabad Police Station were also under investigation being his accomplices.
The report stated that NAB inquiry officers visited two factories and a house in Hayatabad allegedly being used as torture cells by the police officer, but no evidence was found in this regard. It added that one double cabin vehicle, Corolla GLI (2011-12) and Suzuki Swift (2011-12) were in use of the police officer.
The issue surfaced after Jamdad, a citizen of Peshawar filed a petition in the court. The information came to light when an inquiry report was produced before the Peshawar High Court.
