Lahore: Mob tries to ‘do justice’ to robber
LAHORE: Taking a cue from two recent incidents in Karachi, scores of angry people subjected a robber to severe torture and tried to set him ablaze outside a cell phone outlet after a robbery on Sanda Road on Sunday. Reports said four robbers barged into the U-fone shop of one Azam Nisar, held the owner and employees at gunpoint, collected Rs95,000 and 80 cell phones and tried to escape on their two motorcycles.
Two accused could not start their bike (LEL-6838) as a result of which one of them fled with the other two robbers, leaving their fourth accomplice there.
In the meantime, a citizen managed to capture the robber and started thrashing him. Soon he was joined by a number of people who also managed petrol and a matchbox. But a Sanda police team reached there and managed to rescue the robber, identified as Amjad, from the clutches of angry mob and took him to the lockup in a critical condition. A case has been registered.
