Police inquiry clears businessman of any wrongdoing

Published

on

KARACHI: A criminal case, registered against a Karachi-based businessman Shahzad Riaz at B-Section Police Station of district Khairpur under Sections of Anti-Terrorism Act and dacoity, was proven fake and fictitious in police inquiry.

The registration of cases against businessman Shahzad Riaz at various police stations in Sindh and the Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) is a classic example of police atrocities against the citizens.

The inquiry was ordered on June 16, 2022, by a Divisional Bench of Sindh High Court, of the case against Shahzad Riaz a Karachi-based businessman. According to the documentary evidence available with The News, the case was registered by Ali Rehbar Rind, resident of district Khairpur on May 2, 2022, when Shahzad Riaz was behind the bars in Sanghar in another case of alleged fraud of Rs500,000. The complainant in the FIR maintained that Shahzad Riaz on December 29, 2021, had snatched a Nokia mobile phone worth Rs5,000 on gun point and created terror by aerial firing at Shah Hussain Bypass in district Khairpur.

DSP Ghulam Ali Jumani, the inquiry officer, in his report, submitted before the Sindh High Court, that the case was fake and fabricated and questioned as to how a large taxpayer businessman of metropolitan city would come nearly 500 kilometers away to snatch a mobile phone worth Rs5,000. SSP Malik Zafar Iqbal told ‘The News’ that the case was proven fake in the investigation, conducted on orders of the Sindh High Court. He added that if Shahzad Riaz approaches Khairpur Police for action against the complainant then a legal action would be taken.

On the other hand Shahzad Riaz claimed that all the cases against him were registered to please an influential personality. “Some of the cases have already been proven fake and fabricated, and the remaining will also be proven false”. Earlier, Riaz was booked for alleged misappropriation of public funds in the ‘Sindh Tractor Subsidy Scheme’ by Sindh Anti-Corruption Establishment on January 4, 2022. When the Sindh High Court had granted him bail on April 29, 2022 and ordered to release him, the Sanghar Police which had registered a fraud case of Rs500,000 on the same day, took Riaz into custody from Central Jail Hyderabad.

The miseries of Shahzad Riaz did not end as when he filed a bail application, then the Khiarpur Police registered another case against him under Section of dacoity and terrorism. Earlier in 2017, Riaz was booked in the ‘Sindh Tractor Subsidy Scheme’ case on similar charges and remained in jail for four months before being released on the bail by the Sindh High Court. On June 10, 2022, the SHC took exception to the arrest of a businessman and observed that the police and the prosecution did not act in accordance with the law.

Karnataka High Court sets aside creation of Anti-Corruption Bureau

In a major setback to govt., court restores power of Lokayukta police to probe graft cases against public servants

In a major setback to govt., court restores power of Lokayukta police to probe graft cases against public servants

In a major setback to the State government, the High Court of Karnataka on Thursday set aside the constitution of a separate Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB), under the direct control of the Chief Minister, in 2016 by withdrawing the powers vested with the Karnataka Lokayukta (KL) police wing to probe all cases under the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988 against public servants.

“The State government is not justified in constituting the ACB by an executive government order, dated March 14, 2016 exercising its executive power under Article 162 of the Constitution of India when the Karnataka Lokayukta Act, 1984 has occupied the field to eradicate corruption in the State…,” the court observed.

ACB abolished

While declaring that the ACB stood abolished with immediate effect, the court restored the power to investigate the corruption cases in Karnataka to the KL police wing as it existed prior to the creation of ACB.

The court also made it clear that all the pending inquiries, investigations, and cases being prosecuted by the ACB got transferred to the KL police wing for further action as per the law.

A Division Bench, comprising Justice B. Veerappa and Justice K.S. Hemalekha, delivered the judgment on three separate PIL petitions filed by Chidananda Urs B.G., the Advocates’ Association, Bengaluru, and Samaja Parivarthana Samudaya, an NGO, and a batch of petitions filed by public servants questioning the powers of the ACB.

‘CM is supreme’

“On careful perusal of the impugned executive order, it also clearly depicts that Chief Minister is supreme and absolutely there is no independent application of mind by the State government as it was issued merely based on the recommendation made by the Director-General and Inspector-General of Police (DG&IGP),” the Bench observed.

Except stating that the government had realised the necessity of a strong and effective vigilance system in addition to Lokayukta, no other reason had been assigned for creating ACB as a parallel to the institution of Lokayukta, the Bench pointed out.

It is not the case of the government that either the KL police wing was ineffective in implementing Prevention of Corruption Act or the Lokayukta or the Upalokayukta had expressed difficulty to take the burden of Prevention of Corruption Act, the Bench said.

Who will act against CM?

While noticing that the Karnataka Lokayukta Act had provisions to probe corruption cases against the Chief Minister, Ministers, and members of the legislature, the Bench pointed out that it was not forthcoming in the executive order as to who was the authority to take action, in case the Chief Minister, a Minister, a member of the State legislature, etc., were involved in corruption and favouritism.

If really the government intended to curb corruption, favouritism and indiscipline in the administrative machinery, the court said, the ACB should have been allowed to work under the control of Lokayukta instead of the Chief Minister as stated in the executive order.

“Therefore, there is more scope in the executive order for the political influence and the Chief Minister in power can misuse ACB to control his opponents within his party or the opposite parties. The conditions of the executive government order clearly depict that there is a possibility to favour the party in power or the partymen,” the Bench observed.

“The executive government order constituting ACB empowers the Chief Minister to veto investigation or the sanction of investigation. This itself defeats the very purpose of the anti-corruption drive and ACB is not at all an independent body,” the Bench observed.

It also pointed out that the government withdrew its 1991 and 2002 statutory notifications of empowering of KL police wing to probe cases under the Prevention of Corruption Act and declaring KL police office as “police station” without consulting the Lokayukta.

The Bench said: “It is most unfortunate that even after lapse of 75 years of Independence, no political party in the country is willing or dare enough to allow independent authority like the Lokayukta to discharge its duties in a transparent manner in the interest of public at large.
