LAHORE: The police have registered a case against eight people for harassing a family and damaging furniture at a restaurant in the Defence Housing Authority (DHA).

The suspects also threatened the staff when they intervened to rescue the family.

According to the FIR lodged by Ahmad Khan, a resident of the Lahore Cantt area, he visited the restaurant in DHA, in the jurisdiction of Defence C police, with his family a few days ago. Some boys who were already present there harassed his female family members. When he intervened to stop them, the suspects attacked him, his aunt and sister.

The restaurant’s management came to their rescue, but the suspects returned with an armed group and attacked the hotel staff, causing damage to the property and creating terror. The suspects fled the scene in their cars after the incident.
