FAISALABAD, Aug 25: Three people on Friday slit the nose of a woman and also beat her up for pursuing a case in the Lundianwala police.

Tahir, Qurban and Saleem stopped Ruqqaya Bibi, wife of Ghulam Qamar of Jaranwala, when she was returning home along with her husband after seeing her sister at Mehr Town, Syedwala. They slit her nose and thrashed the couple.

Admitted to Allied Hospital, she said the assailants nurtured a grudge against them for pursuing an old case and squabbled with her family a few days ago. She said the group tried to molest her and escaped after torturing her and her husband.

She said the Lundianwala police did not register a case on her application. She said the rivals were using

various tactics to make her withdraw the case.

Lundianwala SHO Ishfaq told Dawn that the woman had not filed any application for the registration of a case.

Syedwala police Moharrar Asghar told Dawn a case had been registered against four suspects and one of them, Qurban, had been arrested.
