KASUR: The Kot Radha Kishan police on Sunday lodged a case against unidentified suspects for damaging plaques of scores of graves at a graveyard near Ghandian village.

According to police, the suspects damaged headstones and other parts of at least 30 graves. Police said they were clueless about the offenders and their objectives. It’s painful for the families of those buried here, they said.

SHO Rana Sohail said police had lodged a criminal case against suspects under section 297 (trespassing of burial places) of PPC and were looking into the matter.

He said police had also initiated investigation into the recent blasphemous wall chalking.
