Gujranwala: SHO booked for lawyer’s torture
GUJRANWALA: The sessions court on Tuesday ordered the regional police officer to book an SHO and four traffic wardens for ‘torturing a lawyer and implicating him in a criminal case’.
Lawyer Muhammad Afzal of Kamoki pleaded that he was on his way to the sessions court by a passengers van. He said that in front of Sheranwala Bagh on GT Road warden Nawaz, who was riding a slowly moving bike and using his cell phone, obstructed the traffic.
The lawyer said when he asked the warden to give way to the van and that he should not be using a cell phone while riding the bike, he (warden) became infuriated, dragged him (lawyer) out of the van and subjected him to torture with the help of some of his colleagues (wardens).
The lawyer said the warden then took him to Sabzi Mandi Police Station where SHO Inspector Amir Shaheen Gondal detained him (lawyer) in the lock-up, implicating him in a criminal case.
Judge Abdul Nasir ordered the RPO to register a case against the accused wardens and the SHO.
