Egypt Prosecution Questions Policeman For Killing Man Inside Station

Egyptian prosecutors are questioning a low-ranking policeman after he shot dead a man inside Giza’s Imbaba district police station on Sunday.

Police investigators said the slain man belonged to the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood and came to the station to pay bail to release a detained relative of his.

Police claimed an arrest warrant had been previously issued against him which led to the policeman attempting his arrest, according to Al-Ahram’s Arabic news website.

A physical confrontation then ensued between both men and ended with the policeman firing three shots at the victim, killing him instantly, according to an investigating officer, as reported by Al-Ahram.

The name of the killed worker has not yet been disclosed.

Police forces arrived to secure the scene after the victim’s family heard of his death and gathered at the police station.

The body has been transferred to Imbaba Hospital and will undergo an autopsy by the state’s forensic authority later.
