TAXILA: The Attock police on Saturday sacked two policemen for allegedly posting blasphemous and derogatory remarks against a companion of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) on their Facebook pages. After an outcry on social media, the Attock city police registered a case against the policemen under Section 298-A and started investigation.

Attock DPO Shoaib Mehmood removed the two from service after they were found guilty in a departmental inquiry.
