SWAT: A traffic officer was suspended in Swat district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on Thursday for fining the father of PTI MNA Murad Saeed over violation of traffic laws, SAMAA reported.
The move angered the young PTI MNA, who reportedly used his influence in the provincial government to get the warden suspended for doing his duty.
According to the challan, a copy of which is available with SAMAA, Saeed ullah, father of Murad Saeed, was slapped with the fine of Rs315 in cash for traffic violation at 11:19am today (Thursday).
A few hours after the incident, Traffic Officer Muhammad Hayat was sacked.
A source told SAMAA that the warden lost his job at the behest of MNA Murad Saeed.
