Lahore: Man tortured to death
LAHORE: A 45-year-old man was found tortured to death from Tibbi City Area, police said on Friday. The dead body was packed in a sack and was lying near the heaps of garbage at Shimla Road on early Friday as the police investigators rushed to the spot. Some passers-by noticed the blood seepage from the bag and contacted the police by phone.

The police have removed the body, yet to be identified so far, to the morgue for autopsy. The police have also registered the case against unidentified killers and are investigating with no arrest made so far.
