Final version of “Finally I caught a thief”
The culprit has been suspended for a temporary period from his service
Thursday morning; I got a call from Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP), Nasir Aftab who asked me to come in his office, in F-8 opposite to NADRA.
I again told him the whole tale from the start and he said I did not file the report on which I tell him that yes I did and Mr. Saqib, whose name I mentioned in my previous post as Mr. Sadiq, wrote the information.
ASP asked me if I wrote any application and gave it to Saqib. I said No! I did not and I did not know that I was supposed to write one. I told him that it was Mr. Saqib’s responsibility to guide me about the process.
After he heard my side of the story he told me that Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Akhter Abbas Shah gave a written application in which he said that he haven’t met any lady and no kid had been hand over to him.
Meanwhile he called his peon to present the kid and his uncle for recognition. When the kid came in he was not the one I handed over to the police though he was the one who was taken to Edhi Homes by the police. At that moment ASP Nasir came to know that the kid asked for is missing and no one knows where he is.
Later ASI Ishtiaq Shah, who was coordinating with me on phone, was presented and he said he is not the one who was handling the case. Where as, the Naib Muharor Saqib (the one who deals with the public complaints when the upper subordinator is not on his seat), who wrote my complaint on 13th of this month, told ASP that ASI Ishtiaq was the one whom he handed over the kid.
When Saqib was called in, again, in ASP office he did not change his statement but got scared to see ASI Ishtiaq and said he should be given time to check the details in the register.
I sat there for two hours but Mr. Saqib did not appear. Meanwhile I had a cup of tea, which I usually do not drink but had to, as ASP insisted and I could not say no to him.
After sitting for two hours my bums were seriously aching, ASP also calculated my condition as I was changing sides on my seat so he asked me to leave and he will call me again if any further help required.
Later that evening he called and said that Naib Muharor Saqib is the culprit as he did not assisted you properly and did not hand over the kid to ASI Akhter.
Now he is suspended for a time being and later Authorities will lodge a “show cause notice” against him in which he has to prove himself innocent otherwise either he will be terminated from his service or would not be promoted from his designation, as a Naib Muharor, in future.
I am happy that the case was well ended and there are people within the police department who are present for public service and help them out in the real sense.
Now what I am worried about is that where did they send the kid, who stole my purse? As there is no record regarding his release or arrest.
