According to a source who was present at the time of the incident said the SARS officials scaled the fence of her aunt's house and opened fire on occupants.

The deceased who was doing his chores was shot in the arm as he tried to run upon sighting the gun-wielding officers whom he took for armed robbers.

The source said;

One of the officers shot him in the hand. Sadiq was bleeding. He handcuffed Sadiq and one of the neighbour’s son and took them into their vehicle.

Meanwhile, the remaining officers broke the doors into the house, brought out the remaining boys and her husband and started beating them up.

After we narrated our own side of the story, the officer realised there were some hidden facts. After clearly listening to his step mum, a senior officer asked them to release everybody.

After going back and forth, I insisted they give us Sadiq for treatment and seeing it’s a gunshot injury and none of the hospitals will accept us without a police officer attached to us. I demanded that one of the police officers should accompany us to the hospital.

They took Sadiq into their Hilux vehicle and drove him to National Hospital and left. The doctors told them to wait behind and submit their statement but they refused and left us there. When the bandage on Sadiq’s hand was removed, it was a gunshot injury.

While confirming the incident, spokeperson for the FCT Police Command, Mr Anjuguri Manzal, said he had not been briefed about the incident and would therefore not comment on it.
