PESHAWAR: A local staffer of daily Dawn has demanded strict police action against six people for torturing his son and brother-in-law on Friday.

Mahmood Iqbal complained to the head of the Chamkani police station that six youths of his area, Gulshan Colony, including Yaseen, Fakhar, Saddam, Aman, Hassan and Mohsin injured his son, Ameer Hamza Mohammad, by thrashing without reason.

He insisted that the violence against his son, a second-year student of the FC Cadet College, Warsak, was committed at the behest of Yaseen’s father and a bank employee, Haroon.

The complainant added that the suspects also attacked his brother-in-law, Shah Faisal Bilal, with a knife, and pushed and slapped his daughters, wife, nieces and sister-in-law when they came to the rescue of Ameer Hamza.

He also accused the suspects of teasing women, beating up children and harassing local residents.
