Female doctor who abused policemen in Islamabad sent on judicial remand for 14 days

October 21, 2018
She threatened them because they didn’t let her enter the diplomatic enclave without a licence plate

The doctor who misbehaved with police officers who barred her from entering the diplomatic enclave in Islamabad without a licence plate will be sent to jail on a 14-day judicial remand on Sunday.

Judge Adnan Rasheed rejected her bail plea and instead sent Dr Shehla Sethi to jail.

Her lawyer had argued that the clauses mentioned in the FIR were bailable and said she suffered from cardiac issues that were exacerbated by stress. The court ordered that a medical test be conducted, after which she can be sent to jail.

The US-based doctor who recently returned to Pakistan was caught on camera on October 17 threatening police personnel for not allowing her into the diplomatic enclave. She was arrested on Saturday and a case registered against her on behalf of ASP Tahir Farooq. She was taken to the women’s police station after her arrest.
