A Pakistan Railways police constable was involved in a violent altercation with a woman on the Millat Express train. The incident, which was captured on video and went viral, shows the constable, identified as Mir Hasan, physically assaulting the woman, Maryam Bibi, after she allegedly refused to vacate another passenger’s seat.

According to the spokesperson for Pakistan Railways, the situation escalated after the woman scattered the belongings of the passenger whose seat she was occupying. Despite the constable’s repeated requests for her to move, which lasted approximately 20-25 minutes, she remained defiant.

The altercation took a tragic turn when the women body was discovered near Chani Goth, Bahawalpur. Meanwhile, the constable disembarked at Hyderabad station. The call detail record (CDR) of the constable has been obtained, confirming his presence in Karachi and Hyderabad on the days following the incident.

However, railways authorities are trying to save the Railways police constable and trying to fabricate the facts. In Pakistan is common to fabricate the facts to weak the prosecution evidence and case to get relief for the accused and criminals.

This incident has sparked a debate on human rights and police accountability in Pakistan. The railway police have faced criticism for their handling of the situation, and questions have been raised about the methods employed by law enforcement in dealing with public altercations.

The constable is currently out on bail, and efforts are being made to have his bail revoked as the investigation continues. The railway authorities have stated that they are not ruling out any aspect of the investigation and are taking witness statements into account.

The case has brought to light the ongoing issues of police conduct and the protection of human rights within the country. It underscores the need for a comprehensive review of police protocols and training, with a focus on de-escalation techniques and respect for individual rights.
