LAHORE, Nov 30: Police have not yet arrested businessman Faisal Farooq. Mr Farooq allegedly killed a two-month-old baby boy in a road accident on Nov 26.

The Cantt SP (investigation) claimed that a case was registered against him late on Wednesday night when he thrashed an uncle of the child for not making compromise. He said

Defence police investigation team raided the Davis Road residence and office of the accused on Thursday but made no arrest.

Sources, however, claimed that despite the registration of the FIR the investigation team did not carry out a raid to arrest the accused who was being protected by a serving senior police official.

Aaraj was killed while his parents and grandmother were injured when Farooq’s car hit their vehicle in Defence on Nov 26.

Farooq got interim bail in the case. The police lodged another case against him for threatening the family of the deceased with dire consequences for not making compromise.

Meanwhile, Waseem Sajjad and his wife Ayesha were discharged from hospital on Thursday.
