Gujranwala: Female prisoner beaten by jailers
GUJRANWALA: A female under–trial prisoner was beaten and injured by the jail staff on Tuesday. Rizwana Kausar, in a complaint to Additional Sessions Judge Mian Yaqoob, alleged that Warden Arshad Begum had demanded Rs 100 as bribe from her. “I refused to give her bribe. The warden told the high-ups that I had been calling names of Deputy Superintendent Jail Bilqees Begum.
Later, DSJ Bilqees Begum with two female convicts severely beat me up,” she alleged and added that the female prisoners had protested against the incident. The court ordered the medical examination of the prisoner and summoned female jailers.
