Extortion slur cast on commandos

IMPHAL, Jul 13: In an act of denigrating the image of the whole Police Department, some Police Com- mandos allegedly threatened and demanded Rs 5 lakhs for securing the release of one of the sons of AR Shaha, who is the Chief Engineer of Minor Irrigation Department, even after robbing the son of all his money and valuables.

The incident reportedly occurred at around 4.30 am yesterday. The Commandos picked up the son of AR Shaha identified as Zeour Rahaman Shaha from near Imo Filling Oil Pump at Yumnam Leikai under Imphal West Police Station and after robbing all the mo-ney and other valuables from his possession demanded Rs 5 lakhs for his release threatening him to be eliminated if the demand is not comply with.

Talking to mediapersons in this connection at Mani-pur Press Club here this afternoon, Zeour Rahaman Shaha said that at around 4 pm yesterday he was coming out from his Lilong Lei- haokhong residence driving a Scorpion (MN04A-1226) along with two other persons identified as Md Wahidur Rahaman (30) s/o Md Majahar Raha-man of Lilong Yangbi Leikai and Md Fajiruddin (20) s/o Md Alimuddin of Lilong Turel Ahanbi to print invitation cards and purchase some construction/repairing materials in connection with the marriage ceremony of his younger brother Mu-bimur Rahaman Shaha which falls on August 3.

As they approached, Imo Filling Oil Pump at Yumnam Leikai, some Commandos coming from the opposite side in a black Gypsy bearing registration no. MN01A-6039 stopped them. However, when they get down, the Commandos arrested them without furnishig any reason.

With exception to him, the Commandos blindfolded Md Wahidur Raha- man and Md Faijuddin and then all three of them were taken toward Tera side. At Tera, as the tyre of the Scorpion punctured, the Com- mandos left it to the custody of some IRB personnel on duty there. After that all three of them were dragged inside the Gypsy of the Commandos and driven off to some unknown destination.

After around half an hour, the Gypsy dropped at some open place and made all three of them to come out. Then the Commandos took away three mobile phone handsets which were in their possession besides Rs 16,400 in cash, one laptop and vehicle documents while charging that Md Wa-hidur Rahaman is a PULF activist and asking him where the guns are being hidden, Zeour Rahaman Shaha said, adding that all three of them were also subjected to thrashing by the Commandos.

He further informed that after the thrashing, the Commandos demanded Rs 5 lakhs for securing their release and threatened to kill them if the amount is not paid.

Apart from forcing him to give an assurance on payment of the amount, he was also made to sign on four blank Bank papers brought by the Commandos and telling him to contact on Santosh on mobile phone no. 9436667808 for handing over the amount within 7 am of July 13 positively.

Finally they were brought back to Tera at around 8.30 pm where their punctured Scorpion was lying. After repairing the tyre in a workshop, the Commandos escorted them till Khoyathong Traffic Point.

After of Zeour Rahman Shaha, AR Shaha who was also present at the occasion expressed strong resentment over the conduct of the commandos terming it as an act of terrorizing innocent civilians.

The father also drew the attention of the higher officials of the Police Department to look into the matter and ensure such unwanted incidents do not occur in the future.

Meanwhile, according to sources in the Police department, though no complaint have been lodged from the side of the family members, yet the Police have taken up steps to conduct an inquiry into the incident.
