Cynthia Ritchie case: Rehman Malik, Gilani vindicated

Islamabad: Islamabad Police on Monday once again in subsequent second investigation exonerated Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani and Senator A. Rehman Malik of all allegations levelled against them by Ms. Cynthia Dawn Ritchie and termed her allegations as false and frivolous. The Police prayed in the court that Cynthia D. Ritchie petition may kindly be dismissed being meritless.

The police have observed that Cynthia Dawn Ritchie is submitting such type of application against the proposed accused persons just to counter blast the case register against her in FIA.

The Superintendent of Police, Complaints on behalf of Islamabad Police submitted the second detailed report in the court of Additional Session Judge, Islamabad after investigating all allegations against Senator Rehman Malik and reinforced that all allegations leveled by Cynthia Dawn Ritchie are baseless, false and frivolous as she failed to give any proof and evidence in support of her allegations.

The Police report states “she leveled an allegation of rape with her during year 2011 but perusal of the record revealed that neither she moved any application in the police station herself regarding initiation of criminal proceedings nor any such information has been received in the police station from the concerned Embassy nor she filed any complaint either verbally or in writing at any forum regarding the incident. It is also noteworthy to mention that the medical evidence is very much essential in such like cases but neither she has requested for her medical examination nor attached any medico legal report alongwith her application. Eventually, the contents of this para also found based on false and frivolous allegations.”

The police report observes “it is also pertinent to point out that after receipt of the above application in the police station, neither the petitioner (Cynthia Dawn Ritchie) got examined the place of occurrence nor produced any document/evidence in support of her version.” Police in its report has concluded and prayed that since Cynthia D. Ritchie application is not based on facts therefore it may kindly be dismissed being meritless. It is however pertinent to mention that Islamabad High Court had directed Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to investigate her highly defamatory and derogatory tweets against Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto to defame her family and party.
Regarding the alleged threats by unknown workers of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), the police report states “that perusal of Cynthia Dawn Ricthie application revealed that the petitioner alleged that she was threatened by the workers of PPPP through WhatsAap and Social Media but neither she mention any cell numbers through which threatening call/massages were received nor mentioned that date and time of received call/massages nor intimated the name of the person who threatened nor mentioned the type of the threat. It is pertinent to mention that all the allegations mentioned in the application by the petitioner are either through Whats App or Social Media which relates to the Cyber Crimes which comes under the domain of FIA whereas, threat received on telephone and Whats Aps also comes under the domain of FIA as Telegraph Act is also Schedule offences of FIA Act 1974.

Senator Rehman Malik stands vindicated after thorough investigation by the senior police team and in the meanwhile a Qafz case has already been admitted by the court on the complaint of Rehman Malik. The court has served her notice in Qazf case and has declared her as accused/Mulzima though she has been avoiding facing the court.

When contacted, the spokesperson of Senator Rehman Malik said that they are thankful to Allah Almighty for exonerating him from false, fabricated, concocted, frivolous and baseless allegations. He said that Senator Rehman Malik greatly respects the women and that is why he has not responded to Cynthia D. Ritchie in the same language and has never used any foul mouth against her. He said that Senator Rehman Malik believes that time is not so far that truth will revealed and he will be exposing all those who are behind to block his political career. He added that Senator Rehman Malik is thankful to the people for their support.
