RAWALPINDI, July 16: A Talagang cleric is rueing his success in landing “a date” with a woman he had long sought - in a police lockup.

Police say Qari MSAC had been pestering Ms SS with obnoxious phone calls for a meeting for months. He might have thought the mother of five an easy prey as her husband had been languishing in jail for a year in a robbery case.

But Ms SS, and her mother-in-law Ms FT, had plans to outsmart MSAC, an old hand of a banned militant religious group, in his unholy game.

When he called her late on Monday, Ms SS ‘fell’ for his pleas and invited him to her house. MSAC rushed from Talagang, landing at her house in Rawalpindi around midnight.

Once he was in with the date on his mind, the two women locked the room from outside and called the neighbours.

After all of them had given the obnoxious Romeo a beating, he was handed to the area police.

“We have booked him on the charges of making obnoxious calls and entering into a house,” the police investigating officer told Dawn.

He said the accused will be produced in the court of area magistrate on Tuesday to seek remand custody.—Mohammad Asghar
