LAHORE: Kahna police on Thursday lodged a case against over 60 suspects for attacking the security check post of Valencia Housing Society and injuring many guards.

The first information report was registered on the complaint of one of the guards Javed Akhtar.

According to the FIR, over 60 suspects carrying iron rods, clubs and bricks attacked the security check post of the Valencia Housing Society, injured nearly seven guards, destroyed greenbelts and damaged many motorbikes.

He said the attackers entered the society’s boundary from adjoining Naz Town.

They planned the attack following a dispute over setting up security barriers on the entrance to the Valencia Housing Society which was sharing boundaries with the adjoining Naz Town.

Most of the attackers were residents of Naz Town and they claimed that the barriers had created many issues for the Naz Town residents.

The complainant said that the intruders pelted the guards with stones when the staff tried to stop them.

They also attacked with clubs and injured seven guards, one of them critically, according to the footages.

Those injured were later identified as Naveed, Basit Ali, Hussain Meer, Abdul Raheem, Gull Faqeer, Asghar, Sharafat Ali and supervisor Asif Nawab.

He said the attackers damaged several motorbikes and cars which were parked along the roads of the society, creating panic among the residents.

They had fled the scene on seeing the police force.
