Kasur: Torturing a 10-year-old boy to death, Faith healer remanded for five days
KASUR: A local court remanded the faith healer, who tortured to death a 10-year-old boy, in police custody for five days. Earlier, the Ganda Singhwala police arrested the faith healer and presented him in court. Meanwhile, hundreds of people attended the funeral for Shoaib, the victim, who was buried at a local graveyard at Mahalam Kalan on Wednesday.
Shoaib, 10, was suffering from fever when his mother took him to the faith healer Shahbaz who brutally tortured him on the pretext of getting him rid of evil powers. Severe swelling appeared on his body and he was unable to see. Amin, a poor worker, requested the doctors to save the life of his son but he was not treated at DHQ hospital. Later, he took his son to Lahore General Hospital where he died. Amin said that his son was not treated in both hospitals. After the death of Shoaib, the police re-arrested the accused. Social circles have demanded that the accused should be tried in an anti-terrorism court.
