Probe ordered into death of student, girlfriend
ATTOCK, Jan 10: Regional Police officer (RPO) DIG Nasir Khan Durrani on Saturday ordered an inquiry to ascertain the cause of death of a medical college student and his girlfriend.

The RPO issued the orders on the application of a local dental surgeon of Attock Dr Saqib Suleman, the elder brother of the deceased student.

The applicant, Dr Saqib, said that his 22-year-old brother Amir Suleman was first year MBBS student of Rawalpindi Medical College. On December 31, 2008, the birthday of his brother, he received information at about 7.30 pm that his brother Amir was shot dead and his body was lying at the tehsil headquaters hospital Taxila.

He rushed to the hospital along with other relatives and found his brother’s body in the mortuary with bullet wounds to his skull. On query, the investigation officer, Sub-Inspector Sikandar Hayat, who was present at the spot, said Amir committed suicide with a pistol after injuring a 19-year-old girl at Wah Cantonment near her house. The girl, who was also a medical college student, was rushed to a local hospital, he maintained.

The police registered attempted murder and suicide cases against his dead brother on the report of the mother of the deceased girl without going through medico-legal, violating the rules, he said. After three days of the incident, the injured girl also died at the hospital on January 3, he said.

According to medico-legal report, the bullet entered his skull from the left side whereas his brother was a right-hander. There was also no charring of the area where the bullet hit, which proved that the shot was fired from a distance instead of point blank, he said.

Such findings of medico legal report enough to prove that his brother and girl were killed by third person, he claimed.

Moreover, police had neither recorded any statement of the injured girl as she was alive for three days nor did carry out her postmortem and even her relatives took her body from the hospital and buried without informing the local police, he said.

Frequent power outages hit security arrangements
ATTOCK, Jan 4: Long hours of scheduled and unannounced loadshedding is creating hindrance in the security arrangements as the walkthrough gates, close circuit cameras and other electronic security devices cannot function properly without the availability of electricity, it has been learnt.

Owing to a number of terrorism incidents, security cameras had been installed at jewelry shops, hotels, markets, banks and other public places besides walkthrough gates at government offices, religious places and other sensitive points to avoid any untoward incident but frequent power outage was rendering them useless.

The development was making it difficult for the law-enforcing agencies to ensure foolproof security in the city.

Loadshedding had caused major problems to the communication system of the police and pother law-enforcement agencies as they could not even charge their wireless sets and other communication equipment.

Because of this, the law-enforcers were relying on manual security arrangements which were ineffective in the current situation, particularly to implement the Muharram security plan, the sources maintained.

Robbers and thieves were also taking an advantage of the problems in the security arrangements and they find it easy to escape in the night darkness after committing street crimes.

The power outage was also causing problems to patients visiting and admitted to the hospitals, including District Headquarters hospital (DHQ). The patients struggle to get their X-rays and tests from laboratories.

According to the patients at DHQ hospital, the hospital despite having a generator was not catering to their needs and even scheduled operations were being postponed because of loadshedding.The frequent power breakdown was also affecting trading activities and domestic life.

Schedule of power loadshedding is not even available with the local Islamabad Electric Supply Company (Iesco) complaint office, a group of residents told this reporter.

When contacted, an official of the Iesco said loadshedding timings were being decided by the National Power Control Centre (NPCC) and that the local office was not aware of it.
