The Daily Pakistan reported via its sources that the drama began when a Sub-Inspector Atif Shehzad signaled an over speeding car near Nihal Pura on Sunday morning.
To make it worse, two army captains, namely Qasim and Danyal got out of the car, with one of the officers having pointing his official 9mm pistol at the warden.
The situation intensified even further after the police officials, present at the scene, also pointed their guns at the duo considering them ‘terrorists’.
On the other hand, the army officers while executing their own ‘plan of action’ called up the nearest cantonment for reinforcement. That brought Major Zaarfran and his half-a-dozen men squad to the scene.
The army commandos dragged the traffic wardens, SI Atif Shehza, SI Mohsin and Constable Jalal Shah, into an army SUV and took them away to an unknown location – possibly the nearest army station, Akora Khattak.
The whole episode triggered panic among the passers-by, while the Motorways and Highways police calling their high-ups for intervention.
Luckily, the three cops were released after few hours. Unluckily, they were seriously injured after being subjected to torture by the army personnel during their enforced stay at military station.
The wardens were later taken to district headquarters hospital in Nowshera.
