LODHRAN: Swinging into action after a clip surfaced on the social media showing a woman and her daughter kept in chains in a house, police on Saturday arrested her son and husband for chaining the two women at Kehror Pacca.

The clip shared on Whatsapp showed a chained woman, later identified as Maqsood Mai, appealing to police to rescue her and her daughter (Sabira Bibi) from the illegal confinement.

She said they were not given food and water for many days.

According to police, their district chief Malik Jameel Zafar, after knowing about the clip ordered the Kehror Pacca city police to trace the location of the two women and rescue them.

The police, accordingly, traced the maltreated women confined in a house in chains and rescued them.

Maqsood Mai told the police that she and her daughter were chained due to a family dispute by her son and husband.

Police lodged an FIR against Mai’s son Sabir and her husband Muhammad Bakhsh and arrested them.
