ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) police have arrested four Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) personnel for fatally shooting a citizen in Rawal Town on Wednesday night.
According to the FIR [First Information Report], Inayat Shah and Ijaz Shah were on their way to Margalla Town when the ATS personnel signalled them to stop the car. Once the car stopped, the ATS personnel allegedly opened fire at the two men, killing Inayat on the spot and injuring Ijaz, according to Inayat’s son, who is the complainant in the case.
However, the ATS personnel had claimed that they opened fire when the car riders ignored their signal to stop the vehicle at a picket.
Earlier this year in February, a young man was fatally shot by a policeman in Islamabad’s Sector I-10/1 allegedly after failing to stop at a checkpoint.
