Following the Inquiry Report, Ombudsman Punjab ordered to take strict action against Investigation Officer Sardar Muhammad Naeen, Sub Inspector lyas Virk, PS Sabzi Mandi Gujranwala and Gulam Mustafa DSP Khiyali Circle Gujranwala on July 26, 2013. RPO in its report agreed that the investigation of the case was conducted negligently, insufficiently and carelessly and so the supervision. The investigation officer tried to destroy the prime evidence of the case also. City Police Officer Gujranwala issued a show cause notice to the Investigation Officer Sardar Nadeem, says RPO report.
The complainant again approached Ombudsman Punjab and alleged that Gujranwala Police inspite of taking action against police officers, graced them with kindness and benefits. No action has been taken against SI ilyas Virk and Ghulam Mustafa, DSP Khiyali Circle, the Investigation Officer Sardar Naeem has been sent to Sehala for Upper Course despite show cause notice, said the complainant.
The applicant also pointed out that such steps of authorized officers tantamount not only to defiance but also equivalent to flouting the orders and challenging the authority of the Ombudsman Punjab. The applicant also called the attention of Ombudsman Punjab towards the orders of Advisor Investigations in which the SP Gujranwala, Shaheen Hamayun was directed to proceed in a case of theft against the same accused. The local police simply threw the directions of the Ombudsman Office into the dustbin. My father could not bear such blatant violation of the directions of Ombudsman Punjab, non-cooperation of police and lost his life on August 06 while running from pillar to post for justice and relief, stated the applicant. Ombudsman Punjab took serious notice of the callousness and defiance of the police and directed IGP to submit parawise comments on the application of Shahid Bhatti, the applicant, within a period of 10 days.
