Pakistan’s first Sikh police officer has been allegedly abducted by the Pak intelligence agencies and taken to some undisclosed place, reports claimed.
Earlier in 2018, officer Gulab Singh Shaheen was forcibly evicted from his house along with his wife and three children, and he was terminated from his service as traffic police warden.
Before that, he had allegedly remained absent from his job for as many as 116 days.
Furthermore, Shaheen had also raised his voice against senior officers in the Pakistan police service for being vengeful against him.
Singh posted a video on Facebook of his allegations, following which he was allegedly picked up by police.
The issue was, on Wednesday, raised by Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) Manjinder Singh Sirsa who shared a Pakistani news media article carrying the ‘missing’ news of Shaheen.
Sharing the same, Sirsa added that the Pak media speculated that the Sikh officer was abducted by the country’s intelligence agencies.
Sharing the news, Sirsa appealed to the Indian embassy in Pakistan to take cognizance of the matter. “Pak Media speculates that first Sikh Police officer of Pak Gulab Singh Shaheen is allegedly abducted by Pak intelligence agencies & taken to some undisclosed place,” Sirsa tweeted.
Sharing a screenshot of a news article carrying the news of Shaheen’s disappearance, the BJP leader said that he was concerned over the Sikh officer’s safety.
“We are concerned about his safety and family. Urging @IndiainPakistan to address this issue at earliest,” he added.
