LAHORE: Gulberg police arrested three constables for looting a family in street crime and sent them behind bars.
The action was taken against them in the light of an inquiry carried out by a DSP who held them guilty of charges.
A police official said the inquiry was launched when the police high-ups came to know that the constables in uniform intercepted a family near Gaddafi Stadium and harassed them at gunpoint.
The suspects took the family to a nearby bank, used their ATM cards three times and withdrew Rs75,000. They also snatched gold rings from them and fled the scene hurling threats for reporting the matter to the authorities concerned.
