KASUR: Phoolnagar police on Friday registered a case against three drug pushers and their six accomplices for allegedly manhandling the headmaster of a public school who prevented them from selling drugs opposite the school premises.

In his complaint to police, Muhammad Anwar, the headmaster of Government Boys High School No 1, Phoolnagar, accused Qudratullah, Abdullah and Imtiaz of selling drugs near the main gate.

The complaint annoyed the accused who stormed the school on Thursday along with six gunmen and manhandled the headmaster. They also tried to kidnap him in a car, but resistance put up by teachers and students forced them to leave the premises.
