A leaked phone call between Umar Sheikh, the capital city police officer (CCPO) of Lahore, and a woman seeking justice against Lahore’s Raiwind police, went viral on the social media on Tuesday. 

The woman had called the Lahore CCPO and sought action against the personnel of Raiwind Police who barged in her house, ransacked her property and then took her husband away. 

She wanted to check the status of her application, which she had submitted to the Lahore CCPO earlier for action against the policemen who illegally entered her house and took her husband away. 

Shortly after the woman called the CCPO and asked about action on her application, Umar Sheikh started hurling abuses at her. He said he was taking care of her, but she was trying to stage a drama. 

Ever since his appointment as Lahore CCPO a few weeks ago, Umar Sheikh has been in the news for all the bad reasons.
