Two Counter-terrorism Department (CTD) officers, Inspector Rafaqat and Malik Khalid have been accused of kidnapping a citizen for ransom, in a case filed by a woman named Aini.
The complaint alleges that the officers, stationed at CTD Garden, kidnapped Muhammad Ali and demanded a ransom of 2 million rupees.
In an attempt to secure her husband’s release, Muhammad Ali’s wife handed over her jewelry and cash to the inspectors.
Despite receiving the ransom, the officers did not release Muhammad Ali and instead registered a case against him.
The case numbered 242/2024, was registered at Soldier Bazaar Police Station under sections 365, 384, and 385 read with section 34 of the Pakistan Penal Code based on a complaint filed by a woman named Aini.
IG Sindh Ghulam Nabi Memon formed an inquiry committee to investigate the allegations.
DIG CTD Asif Ijaz Sheikh, DIG East Azfar Mahesar, and SSP East Farooq Raza conducted the inquiry and found the CTD officers guilty.
As a result, a formal case has been registered against them.
Inspector Rafaqat was previously involved in a similar kidnapping case at Tipu Sultan Police Station. Following an inquiry, he was removed from his position at CTD Garden.
DIG CTD Asif Ijaz Sheikh had dismissed Rafaqat and three other officers from service.
However, Acting Karachi Police Chief and Additional IG CTD Imran Yaqoob Minhas later reinstated Rafaqat, showing leniency towards his appeal and transferring him out of CTD.
