Police officer Imtiyaz Hussain claims Shujaat Bukhari told him ‘some media persons creating atmosphere for his murder’

There are some well known people hyperactive on Facebook and Twitter who are building an environment to get me killed. These people claiming to be journalists aren’t apparently working with any media house.

Having been never afraid of death and it would be honour to get sacrificed in the line of duty but the perception being created against me is slanderous. I am one among very few police officers active on social media and being forthright and calling a spade a spade.

This is becoming intolerable to them and their bosses across have employed them to target me. They want to silence me on social media.They are the same people who have built a case for Shujat Bukhari’s killing.

Shujat had confided with me how some media guys had been spreading canards against him and creating a conducive atmosphere for his murder.We being a liberal democracy and such elements take full advantage of our liberal laws,knowing it very well that law can’t touch them.
