Police said Nazakat Aslam Awan, 27, and Muhamad Waseem were riding motorcycle when they were hit by a Jeep on Constitution Avenue near the Pak Secretariat complex at around 9:40pm.

The jeep of the USA embassy official, Embassy's Second Secretary Chad Rex Ausburn, crashed into the motorcycle Sunday night, near Shahrah-e-Dastoor. Earlier in April, Joseph Emanuel Hall, the defense and air attaché at the USA embassy, who was riding a land cruiser in the capital, rammed into a motorcycle carrying two men at a traffic signal near Daman-e-Koh, Islamabad.

Subsequently, authorities shifted both the auto and diplomat to the Secretariat Police Station for legal formalities. The motorcyclists were shifted to Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) Hospital.

Yousuf said Monday security officer Taimur Iqbal was arrested after he "physically attempted" to stop police from taking the vehicle and its driver, Chad Auburn, to a police station.

Raja Khalid, deputy attorney general, informed the high court in Islamabad last Tuesday that the USA defense attaché could neither be tried nor arrested because the Vienna Conventions guarantee immunity to designated diplomats against criminal jurisdiction. The US diplomat was briefly held for the incident and later released which also sparked a controversy whether he was enjoying diplomatic immunity to be released from the police custody. Earlier this month, on April 7, the vehicle of US Defence and Air Attaché Joseph Emanuel Hall crushed to death a Pakistani motorcyclist in Islamabad. Police impounded his vehicle and he was handed over to the Foreign Office after verification of his documents. As a result, Colonel Hall has been barred from leaving Pakistan, and officials have demanded that the United States waive his diplomatic immunity so that he can face a criminal trial. A man was killed and another was injured in the accident. In November 2010, a member of the US Regional Affairs Office hit another embassy's vehicle causing damage to both the vehicles at Shahrah-i-Jamhuriat near Radio Pakistan.
