Azadi March police official slits his own throat as he is not given permission to see his sick daughter

A police official, who was performing his duties at the Azadi March, slit his own throat with a shaving blade as he was denied permission to go and see his sick daughter.

Head Constable Siddique Khan – who belonged to Swat district – attempted suicide because he was not permitted to see his sick daughter. He was immediately shifted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (Pims) in a very critical condition.

Head Constable Siddique was part of the contingent of Swat police which reached Islamabad on 30th October to perform their duty at the Azadi March. A few days ago, he was informed that his daughter is severely ill.

He requested the officer for a short leave to go home and see his daughter. In his application, he mentioned that he would be able to take his daughter to a better health facility if he was back home. But he was not only denied the permission but was also rebuked for showing ‘carelessness to the sensitivity of the situation’.

Disheartened and disappointed, he went to the bathroom after finishing his duty and slit his throat with a blade. Fellow police officials broke into the restroom after hearing his voice and found him lying in a pool of blood. He was immediately taken to Pims. After the incident, officers from federal and Swat police also reached the hospital. His throat has been stitched but his situation is still very critical.

DIG Operations Waqaruddin Syed has appointed SP Industrial Area as the inquiry officer to probe into the matter.
