  • Both car and US diplomat shifted to police station for legal formalities

"On Monday, a first information report (FIR) was lodged in the Secretariat police station against Islam with Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Mohammad Yousuf as the complainant", reported Dawn News. Victims are Nazakat Aslam Awan and Muhamad Waseem, residents of Islamabad.

A USA diplomat was released from police custody on Monday after he rammed his vehicle into two motorcyclists near Islamabad Secretariat. The US Embassy temporarily restricted movements of government personnel and advised American visitors to review their personal security plans.

An FIR was lodged against United States embassy security officer, Taimur Iqbal Pirzada, for pushing around policemen, including the duty officer. The police said that the motorcyclist, who also received injuries, did not stop and give way to the vehicle coming from his right side. Both bikers were shifted to the PIMS hospital after police reached the spot. Earlier this month, on April 7, the vehicle of US Defence and Air Attaché Joseph Emanuel Hall crushed to death a Pakistani motorcyclist in Islamabad.

If nothing else, Sunday afternoon's tilt between the Penguins and Flyers was a damn good hockey game. for 50 minutes at least. Philadelphia did not get the type of offence from their blue line in this series that they did during the regular season.

In a separate development, the USA has put off its decision to restrict the movement of Pakistani diplomats in America as both countries try to resolve differences that have strained ties, officials were quoted as saying by the Dawn newspaper on Monday.

The police took the diplomat and his vehicle into custody and they were at the Secretariat police until a report of the incident was registered. Earlier, a foreign office spokesman had said U.S. plans to impose new restrictions on Pakistani diplomats, including barring them from travelling more than 40 km from their posts without permission.

Alice Wells, a senior State Department official, visited Islamabad to discuss the case with senior Pakistani officials, but the diplomatic tussle remains unresolved and ties between the two countries appear increasingly frayed. In November 2010, a member of the US Regional Affairs Office hit another embassy's vehicle causing damage to both the vehicles at Shahrah-i-Jamhuriat near Radio Pakistan.
