Lahore: Couple, minors released after recovery
LAHORE, March 10: The Lahore High Court on Thursday set at liberty a couple and their two minors after getting them rescued from three-year illegal detention of a local landlord in Depalpur.
A bailiff raided the outhouse of landlord Haji Shaukat and recovered Muhammad Mansha, Ghulam Fatima, their minors Zakia and Altaf and produced them before the court.
The victims told the court that the landlord illegally detained them for three years and they were subjected to forced labour. They alleged that the landlord and his men used to torture them.
A relative of the couple had filed the habeas corpus petition for their recovery.
