3-yr-old Pak boy booked for ‘land grabbing’ and ‘stealing property’

In a bizarre case, a three-year-old Pakistani boy was on Saturday booked by the police for allegedly grabbing land and stealing property in Islamabad.

The police at the Shalimar police station in Islamabad registered a case against the child for his alleged involvement in the crime in Sector F-10. He is accused of grabbing land of a plaza and stealing its property.

The toddler’s family on Saturday approached the court to secure a bail before arrest for the toddler, Geo TV reported.

Upon seeing the matter, the Bench expressed its displeasure over the Islamabad police’s blunder 
and demanded to know from the child’s legal counsel if securing a bail was even warranted, it reported.

The counsel informed the court that since the child is nominated in the FIR, therefore bail before arrest is being sought. 

At this, the additional session’s judge remarked that if one institution makes a mistake should the court also keep its eyes closed.

The court has summoned the Station House Officer and the investigation officer to appear before the court and explain their position.

It is not for the time that a child has been booked in criminal case in Pakistan. Last year, Lahore 
police booked a nine-month-old infant for attempted murder.

Police is deemed as high corrupt and inefficient in the country. It still works on the pattern of colonial era with specific laws and power which were meant for a country under external occupation.
