Hands up! Don’t move! These were the common phrases when police officers usually stop some suspects in the middle of the night for checking.

But, believe it or not, this happened to three police officers who were coming from duty and suddenly they heard these phrases. The voice told them to raise their hands in the air and do not make a move. 

Three police officers were robbed of valuables in the Sindh district of Shikarpur, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Saturday.

Police, which is supposed to protect the life and property of the citizens, itself fell prey to the dacoits, when three officers of the Sindh Police Force were looted in Shikarpur.

According to reports, when Azizullah Mahar, Malhar and Hadi Bux, all sub-inspectors, reached Rustam on their return from Police Training Centre, Shahdadkot, they were intercepted by some unidentified armed men.

The dacoits held the police officers still at gunpoint and asked them to keep their hands in the air.

They then robbed the policemen of their mobile phones, cash and important papers.

After looting the police officers, the dacoits fled the scene and the police have so far failed to trace them.
