EX-ADMINISTRATOR KARACHI TENDERS APOLOGY FOR THREATENING COPS
KARACHI (9 News) – Former administrator Karachi Fahim Zaman on Tuesday tendered apology for abusing and threatening on-duty cops in city’s red zone.
In his statement, Fahim said that the viral video on the social media just revealed on sided story and part of half conversation. He claimed that he expressed anger when the cop changed direction of SMG gun towards him.
According to the reports, the former administrator has threatened on-duty cops in city’s red zone after the latter sought national identity card (CNIC) from driver of the former administrator during snap-checking.

Police said they could stop any vehicle in the red zone if they find it suspicious. The police claimed that Zaman abused the police and asked his driver to run over the cops. Later, the ex-administrator left the spot without adhering to the police orders.
Police have now decided to lodge FIR against the former administrator for hurling threats to the police. DIG south said a legal action would be taken against the ex-official of KMC. The law enforcers also decided to include sections of law violations in the case.
“Misbehaviour with the police will not be tolerated at any cost,” said the DIG. The senior cop said the ex-KMC official could also be arrested. The cops who were deployed on the duty for snap-checking also recorded their video narrating the incident.
