BAHAWALPUR: Two persons allegedly shaved off the head and eyebrows of Ali Hamza in Mailsi city of Vehari district, and posted the video of their act on social media.

The police registered a case against Saeed and Abbas and arrested them. They confessed to committing the crime, stating that they held a grudge against Hamza after he forbade them from passing through the street.

ENCOUNTER: Gunman Mahboob Ahmed, allegedly involved in nine criminal cases, was injured in a police encounter at Wahind Sarmani village in the jurisdiction of the Kahror Pakka Saddar police in Lodhran on Thursday midnight.

According to the police, Mahboob was on physical remand in a burglary case and was being escorted by police to a location for the recovery of stolen material.

The police reached near Wahind Sarmani village when three armed motorcyclists opened fire in an attempt to free Mahboob from police custody.

The police retaliated in self-defence, resulting in Mahboob sustaining serious injuries from the firing by his accomplices, who managed to flee from the scene. However, the policemen remained unhurt due to their bulletproof jackets.

Mahboob was shifted to the THQ Hospital and a case was registered against his fleeing accomplices.
