OKARA: Gogera police registered a case against 47 suspects, including a Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) MPA, for barging into the house of a woman and firing in the air at her farms in Fatehpur village.

Noor Akhtar filed an application alleging that on June 23 MPA Masood Shafqat Rubera along with around 50 armed men entered her house in Fatehpur, 35km north of the city, and started shooting in the air besides threatening her ailing father with dire consequences.

Later, the men went to her farms in the suburbs of the village and fired in the air to scare people.

Even after a week since the incident, Gogera police had allegedly refused to file a complaint. The woman went to the district police officer (DPO) and requested him to file the application.

DPO Faisal Rana verified facts narrated by the complainant and got a first information report registered by Gogera police under sections 452, 447, 506-B, 511, 337(h)(2), 148, 149 of the PPC and 7 ATA against 47 men out of whom 22 were nominated, including PTI MPA Chaudhry Rubera, Zahoor Abbas, Rab Nawaz, Yasir Nawaz, Salman Nawaz, Bilawal Nawaz, Faiz Nawaz and Akram Madhool.

The DPO took strict action against the Gogera station house officer for not initiating proceedings on the woman’s application.
