Baiz’s verbal attack on policeman heard by others

The policeman, who was on duty at the entrance to the Parliament on Wednesday afternoon, had kept his walkie-talkie switched on when Deputy Minister of Livestock Development Abdul Baiz verbally abused him and threatened to remove his trousers. His words were heard on all walkie-talkies carried by other policemen.

The Deputy Minister lost his cool when the policeman refused to open the barrier for him as it was not his job. The policeman had told Baiz that he was detailed there for some other duty.

At this point Baiz was said to have asked one of his security men to remove the barrier and had later gone back to the policeman and after scolding him for not carrying out his orders threatened to remove his trousers.

The policeman had lodged a complaint with headquarters over the incident.
