LAHORE: Some enraged lawyers on Tuesday slapped in the courtroom the two teenage boys involved in a case of necrophilia and murder of a minor girl, before a judicial magistrate granted the suspects’ four-day physical remand to police.
Sundar police produced the suspects — Rizwan Yousaf and Allah Ditta — with covered faces before the magistrate amid strict security arrangements.
The investigating officer presented an initial report of the incident and requested the magistrate to grant physical remand of the suspects for further investigation.
The magistrate allowed four-day remand to the police.
During the remand hearing, some lawyers enraged by the incident vented their anger on the suspects and slapped them.
According to the police, the suspect, Yousaf, lured his seven-year-old cousin to a forest near a village in Mohlanwal area where he strangled her before committing necrophilia. His friend Allah Ditta also accompanied him.
The police said the suspects, during the initial interrogation, confessed to their crime.
