Mob burns police picket in Rawalpindi
RAWALPINDI: An angry mob torched a police picket on Benazir Bhutto Road after policemen deployed at the Shamsabad weekly bazaar allegedly tortured a family over parking of a car.
Khalid Rashid, a resident of G-7/3, came to the itwar bazaar along with his family to buy grocery.
Hardly had he parked his car there when a policeman from a nearby picket shouted at him to remove it.
An exchange of hot words between the car driver and the policeman drew the attention of passersby as the family started screaming.
When the police shifted Mr Rashid to the Sadiqabad police station, some relatives and friends of the victim along with people from the bazaar burnt the picket along with the policeman`s private motorcycle.
The police said the issue was later resolved after registration of a report.
