Gujranwala: 2 brothers held for beating anti-polio team
GUJRANWALA: Garjakh police arrested two brothers on the charges of beating an anti–polio team here on Thursday. The anti–polio team comprising Medical Officer Shahid Zaman and area in–charge Muhammad Hanif came to a house at Malikpura and asked Imran Sohail and his brother Amir Sohail to get their child vaccinated against the disease.
They told them that their child had already been given anti–polio drops and was sleeping. The anti–polio team members asked them to bring the child as they wanted to verify it from a mark on his thumb. They brought the child and the anti–polio team saw a mark on his thumb. In the meantime, the child woke up and started crying and this led to an exchange of hot words between them. Later, the two brothers allegedly beat the anti–polio team members.
