Impersonators given police protocol

CHITRAL, June 18: A man from Khyber Agency disguised as son of Awami National Party (ANP) chief Asfandyar Wali Khan was arrested along with his eight colleagues – five from Khyber Agency and three from Chitral – by the Chitral police. The group reached Chitral on a visit and informed the district police officer (DPO) about the arrival of the ANP chief’s son and got official protocol. The police received the so-called VIP guest at the Lowari Tunnel and brought them to Chitral. Later, they visited the scenic resort areas of Garam Chashma and Kalash valleys with full official protocol. However, later the police got suspicious of their activities. A team led by SHO Chitral Zafar Ahmed arrested the group from Kalash valley and put them behind bars after registration of a case against them. Three persons from Chitral were also in the group. The main accused was identified as Noshad Ali, son of Momin Khan, of Landikotel, who identified himself as Emal Wali, son of Asfandyar Wali Khan. The police are investigating the case further.]]>

  1. it is shameful for the Chitral police to provide blind protocol to strangers without verifying them.

  2. This shows two things: First the police are totally incapable and second its job is to serve the politicians not the people.
    This is also embarrassing that the police cannot be trusted for security of the masses. It also shows that any terrorist can also dodge them by just saying they are related to a VIP politician. On the other hand, of late, the Chitral police have been in the news for its highhandedness against unarmed citizens. The Ayun incident is still fresh in the memory of the people.

  3. The news of imposters roaming under full official protocol in Chitral has revealed incapability and corruption in your department. You have confessed that how you and your department are using public money for the sons of politicians. Would you like to answer the following questions honestly?
    *From where the fund which is being spent to entertain these imposters gang (son of Asfandiyar) is coming?
    *Who has allowed you to facilitate Asfandiyar Wali Khan’s son? How much in the past you have spent in this area?
    *Am I right to say that you are working blindly? *Anyone even a terrorist can enter into your office easily? You followed just a telephone call without confirmation?
    *It proved that you do not understand your responsibility. You are there only to listen the telephone of politicians and their sons, right?
    Hope you will have concrete answers to these questions to satisfy the people of Chitral.

  4. It is the negligence of the authorities that without any clearance anyone can enjoy VIP protocol.
    Mr Asfandiyar Wali Khan is the chief of ANP, so he should request to provide VIP protocol. Chitralis are peace-loving people and we should not allow anyone to play with our system. The people of Chitral also have to be alert, especially at a time when there are different threats from miscerants. Some people also played the same game with the innocent people who were victim of natural disasters by promising them to provide them help and rehabilitation.
