Lahore's Naseerabad Police on Wednesday booked a four-year-old boy on charges of gambling and obstructing a government servant in discharge of public functions, DawnNews reported.

The boy's uncle approached a court today regarding the "fake case" against him, his nephew, and his father, which he claimed had been registered upon his (the uncle's) refusal to pay an extortion sum to police officers.

The complainant said that Naseerabad Police had picked him up from a snooker club on December 4 after he refused to hand over Rs3,000 to Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Atif Sultan and other police officials. His nephew and father were also arrested for attempting to convince the police to not take him away.

Additional Sessions Judge Amjad Khan ordered the record of Naseerabad Police Station to be produced in court.

Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Mohammad Ameen Wains took notice of the matter after news of the incident was aired. He ordered the Model Town Superintendent Police (SP) Hasnain Haider to submit a report after completing an inquiry into the incident.
