3 cops sentenced to one-year jail in Gujranwala
GUJRANWALA, April 18: A judicial magistrate got handcuffed three police officials on Monday and sent them to the central jail for keeping a man into illegal confinement at Ferozewala police station.

Tufail again moved the judicial magistrate court when he learnt that the SHO and the other two officials had been declared innocent in a police inquiry.
The judicial magistrate sentenced the three police officials to one-year imprisonment and a Rs2,000 fine each.
