Motorway police personnel and Excise and Taxation Department officials came to blows which led to pointing guns at each other at Nowshera checkpost over checking of a vehicle carrying drugs worth millions of rupees. But to much of their chagrin, the drug smuggler fled the scene as he saw the police and Excise officials involved with each other, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Saturday.
The drug smuggler seeing the law-enforcers busy with each other made good his escape from the scene. Later, the law-enforcers blamed each other for letting the smuggler flee along with the vehicle full of drugs.
The incident occurred when Excise and Taxation Department officials tried to check a vehicle carrying drugs at Nowshera checkpost. However, the Motorway policemen deployed at the checkpost objected which led to heated arguments and then fistfight resulting in drawing guns at each other.
The simmering situation was cooled down by the concerned police station team that took the fighting sides to Akora Khattak police station.
The Akora Khattak team reached the spot and sent the Excise and Motorway Police personnel involved in the incident to the police station to avoid any untoward incident.
Later, Motorway Police Inspector Nasrullah lodged an FIR against the Excise and Taxation Department personnel.
On the other hand, the Excise and Taxation Department has also issued a circular against the Motorway policemen involved in the brawl with its officers.
