TOBA TEK SINGH: City police registered a case on Saturday under the Anti-Terrorism Act against two persons for uploading alleged hate posts on a social media site.

Complainant Mateeullah, of Chak 295-GB, says Rozi Khan, of Azafiabadi in Chak 331-JB, and Muhammad Nadeem Gul Qadri posted objectionable contents on their Facebook pages targeting a religious school of thought.

Police have yet to make arrests in the case.

CASES: A bank branch manager, a private hospital owner and three businessmen were booked on Saturday under Section 14 of the Security Vulnerable Establishment Ordinance of 2015 for their failure to adopt proper security measures to safeguard their business places.

Rajana police registered a case against bank manager Umer Hayat, while Kamalia city police against private hospital owner Dr Kamran Salim.

Toba City police registered cases against the owners of a wholesale grocery shop of the grain market, a cloth shop of Talab Bazaar and a cloth and garments store of Saddar bazaar.

No arrest has been made.

INJURED: International kabaddi player and Pakistan Army’s kabaddi coach Muhammad Irshad Shadda was seriously injured on Saturday in an attempt to restrain two brothers of his village from fighting.

Gojra Saddar police said brothers Abdul Hammed and Abdul Majeed were scuffling with each other outside their house in Chak 154-GB when Mr Shadda tried to intervene.

In the meantime, Zulfiqar Ali, son of Majeed, opened indiscriminate fire leaving Mr Shadda injured. He was rushed to the Gojra Tehsil Headquarters Hospital to be referred to the Faisalabad Allied hospital.

Scores of Kabaddi players visited the hospital. Police are raiding to arrest the accused.

LOOTED: A woman along with her three accomplices took away Rs1.2 million from a resident of Pattoki on Saturday in Gojra.

Police said Zafar Iqbal had come to Gojra with his three friends to buy a car. On Gojra-Toba Road near Chak 301-JB, a woman signalled for a lift. When Mr Iqbal stopped the car, her three accomplices, who were hidden in roadside bushes, came out and snatched Rs1.2 million, mobile phone sets and other valuables from them and fled.

DEMO: Scores of residents of Chah Sikandarwala staged a protest demonstration on Saturday over the failure of Kamalia Saddar police to arrest kidnappers and killers of a man of the locality.

Protesters told reporters that 40-year-old Manzoor Ahmad was kidnapped more than a week ago and his body was found tied with an electricity pole on Thursday.

They said despite the registration of a case, police were reluctant to trace and arrest the accused persons.

Kamalia Saddar Station House Officer Malik Akbar Hayat said a special team consisting of expert police officials was probing the case and soon the killers would be arrested.
