RAWALPINDI (92 News) – A first information report (FIR) on Friday lodged against the policemen for the killing of Waheed Anjum, a former councilor in Kallar Syedan. According the report, former councilor killed in police firing at a check-post in Rawalpindi. The police officials said that police signaled a suspicious black car to stop at a check post in Kalar Sayedan during snap checking but the car didn’t stop and hit a policeman and injured him. The constable was being dragged along with the car, so another constable opened fire, claim the police. It also added that Anjum was injured in the firing and later died at the THQ Hospital. Initially, the police registered a case against deceased former councilor killed in the police firing incident. Anjum’s family and local people of the area have blocked the road and surrounded the police station in Kallar Syedan. They are demanding action against the policemen and say they won't leave until a senior police official comes to talk to them. The Rawalpindi SP has suspended five policemen – three constables and two ASIs – and ordered a case to be registered against them under Section 302 (murder) of the Pakistan Penal Code. He says they should have fired at the car's tyres instead. The Rawalpindi CPO has previously warned police officers against opening direct fire. ASI Imran Khalid and Constable Habib Akhtar have been arrested.
