Person sent to jail due to forwarded message
Person being jailed due to a forwarded message seems like a fairy
tale, a rare case scenario, but it has occurred in Chitral. In
Drosh Chitral, a person got jailed by the current DCO of Chitral,
just because he was raising voice against the ongoing Energy
crisis, and he was actively participating in activities which up
brings people’s voice through APML. ‘He’s been jailed just because
he was not a worker of Awami National Party, had he been a worker
of ANP, he would never been jailed because of a forwarded message’,
The person jailed is Shah Khalid, an
active member of APML party and always keen in upbringing the voice
of Chitral in the form of different peaceful protests and rally’s.
Mr. Shah Khalid is always an active member for the betterment of
the society, he always raises his voice in front of the present
government for the betterment of different social issues, e.g.
energy crisis in Drosh Chitral, water crisis and different social
crisis related to Chitral.
According to his
colleagues, message he sent was to one of the politician friend who
had remained a colleague of his in different issues, but later on
he changed his mind, and for the sake of his personal benefits, he
behaved like an snake which bites his master, and to press the real
voice, he personally showed interest and showed the message to the
DCO, and thus, the DCO sent Mr. Shah Khalid to Jail, today 4th of
August was his fifth day in jail, and today was his bail but he did
not allow it.
Mr. DCO over reacted to the
situation and misused his authority, people are saying that he is
of those people who does not deserve authority. He doesn’t have
right to put people in Jail like this.
not enough! He says, he has been continuously stopping his bail
using his authority as DCO of Chitral for the past five days; the
family is very stressed right now. His bail was expected to be on
4th of August, but DCO personally showed interest and kept it
pending till now.
Now the question rises, do DCO
has authority to put people in jail just because of a forwarded
message where he is involved? It is an appeal to the present
government to take notice of this incident, and act accordingly and
bail the person being jailed for no reason; the DCO is being
personal to the person, and there should be a way out of this.
Therefore it’s a public appeal to the Government to look to this
