SWAT, 04 August: The district police office of Swat has reportedly suspended a warden of traffic police for issue ticket to the father of PTI lawmaker Murad Saeed.

According to reports, traffic police warden Muhammad Hayat fined Murad Saeed’s father Saeedullah for allegedly violating a traffic rule.

The lawmaker’s father allegedly traded harsh words with the traffic police warden. He then, through his lawmaker son, approached the district police officer Swat who suspended the police official and put him in the judicial lockup.

Meanwhile, DPO Swat Saleem Marwat denied the charges that he had suspended the traffic warden. “Neither had I suspended the official nor he has been put in the lock up. An inquiry has been ordered in this regard,” Marwat said.

On the other hand, some of Muhammad Hayat’s friends had termed the DPO statement as fake and insisted that the district police chief had taken action against his subordinate on the behest of the PTI legislator.
