Ex-district nazim booked in another case

CHITRAL, March 21: The police have booked former district nazims of Chitral and Upper Dir for taking out processions in violation of a ban imposed on public meetings in the bazaar area. Chitral DPO Abdur Rashid said on Thursday that the police had registered the case against former Chitral nazim Maghfirat Shah and Upper Dir nazim Sahibzada Tariqullah on the orders of Deputy Commissioner Chitral Rahmatullah Wazir. The two former district chiefs of Jamaat-i-Islami, Maulana Sher Aziz and Abdullah Jan, have also been booked in the case registered under sections 188, 147 and 149 of Pakistan Penal Code. The district police chief, however, said no arrest had so far been made on the basis of the FIR while a source in the police said the nominated persons would be arrested on Friday if the subdivisional magistrate rejected their bail plea. On March 16, former district nazim Maghfirat Shah led a procession to his home accompanied by Sahibzada Tariq and local JI leaders after being released from the district jail in which he was kept for 20 days in the purchase of stolen explosives. During his brief address at Atalique market in the course of his procession, the former nazim had came hard on the deputy commission for his alleged involvement in unlawful activities like construction of a house in the prohibited area near Chitral airport.–Zahiruddin]]>

  1. The DCO Chitral has been accused by locals lastly of building his private set-up there. As for Maghfirat Shah is concerned, he has been found guilty by the law and the DCO has nothing to do with that. Jamaat-e-Islami Chitral is doing a great wrong by siding with him. Jamaat-i-Islami is damaging its reputation.
