Nayyer Bokhari booked for ‘slapping’ policeman

Nayyer Bokhari booked for ‘slapping’ policeman   

ISLAMABAD: Former Senate chairman Syed Nayyer Hussain Bokhari was booked on Wednesday for allegedly slapping a policeman during snap checking in Islamabad.
Bokhari, who is a senior leader of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and a member of the Senate, arrived at a lower court where a policeman on duty at the main entrance asked for a body search. Irked by the act, Bokhari slapped the policeman and barged in the court, it was reported. “Don’t you know who am I?” Bokhari reportedly said.
Islamabad Police Inspector General Tariq Masood ordered Bokhari’s arrest after the police registered an FIR against him at the F-8 Police Station in Islamabad.
Bokhari is a senior PPP leader from Islamabad and he served as chairman of the Senate from March 2012 to March 2015.
Also, bodyguards of the former Senate chairman allegedly resorted to violence during the incident. Reportedly, the policeman who was slapped took the matter to the sessions judge, but he did not heed to his complaint.
The Islamabad police chief said that police personnel were rendering sacrifices for the safety of VIPs and they should not be treated the way Bokhari did. He vowed to set an example out of this case.
