Interview by Yousaf Jan Utmanzai
Upon question asked by Yousaf Jan Utmanzai from the police regarding the whole scenario, the police officer said that these men were involved in the field of crime from the past few months and a few days back they received an FIR of someone being tricked at the ATM.
Upon the order directed by the DPO, the police team was given the task of arresting these men and after a few days, the police were able to catch them, now after the arrest, the police have provided some initial statements but further investigation is underway.
When Yousaf Jan Utmanzai asked from the culprits regarding their crime they accepted it and said they are ashamed of what they have done. The one by the name of Shahid is the mastermind and according to the police he was arrested a few years before for committing such crime and spent 20 days in jail but was then set free by the court. The second partner was the facilitator and is a rickshaw driver it was his first time being in such a scenario but unluckily he was arrested.
These culprits stole the money form the fragile individuals of our society who would receive money from the Benazir income support program, a charity program started by the PPP for the finically weak individuals of Pakistan.
We have to put forth such issues and let you know what is going in our society and a lesson for those who are thinking of taking such a step. If you have any queries do mention in the comment box below.
