After putting all the pieces back together, the Punjab police returned Muhammad Fayaz’s plane back to him on Thursday in Pakpattan.
The plane was returned on the orders of Pakpattan DPO Maria Mehmood. Fayyaz was given his plane back which had been confiscated from him earlier this week.
A team from the Civil Aviation Authority will be visiting Fayaz for inspection of the plane. It was earlier reported that the police had dismantled Fayaz’s plane on Thursday after taking it into custody in Pakpattan.
Fayaz had said earlier that police is not releasing his plane from their custody. He had appealed to the government and the police for the release of his plane.
According to the police, the parts of the plane cannot be handed over to Fayaz since it doesn’t have any chassis number or the engine number.
However, the Rang Shah police station SHO Chaudhry Bashir Ahmed has refused to record his comment.
The Punjab police arrested Fayaz on Monday for attempting to fly a small plane that he built in Pakpattan. He used the metal link road as a runway to take off on his maiden flight and took several rounds in the air before being arrested.
On his arrest, he said that he was just flying his plane but the police hit him. “They beat me up and then arrested me.” He remarked that he felt like a terrorist or a wanted criminal. “I kept thinking that I shouldn’t have done this.”
I just want to work for the betterment of the country, he added.
