The issue surfaced after Jamdad, a citizen of Peshawar filed a petition in the court. The information came to light when an inquiry report was produced before the Peshawar High Court.
According to the report, Inspector Rajab Ali, SHO Hayatabad, recruited as a constable in 1995 turned to be a rich man having two bungalows, 12 cars and a parking lot in Hayatbat, a posh area of the provincial capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
The report said that he has been involved in trapping people in fake cases, kidnapping for ransom and other heinous crimes, including establishing three torture cells and receiving extortion from transporters.
The inquiry report said the officer was being patronized by some influential people and that is evident from the fact that he is still an SHO of Hayabat Police Station. However, he denied all the allegations.
PHC Chief Justice Dost Muhammad Khan has handed over the case to National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and sought a report within a month.
