According to a report by Baaghi TV, a case related to land grabbing by the police, was heard in the Lahore High Court.
The court expressed surprise at the announcement of a reward for police arrest of accused Abid Ali Malhi. The Lahore High Court inquired that it is the responsibility of the police to catch the accused. What is the reward for? Chief Justice Muhammad Qasim Khan, while giving remarks, said that now the police officer should wait for the reward, then catch the accused? The police fails to arrest the accused, and they are involved in land grabbing. Isn’t it the job of the police to catch the accused?
The court said that if the police do not catch the accused, then what will they do?
It may be recalled that Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar had announced a reward of Rs 5 million for IG Punjab and his team on the arrest of Abid Malhi, the main accused in the Gujjarpura rape case.
Abid Malhi, the main accused in the motorway abuse case, has been placed in custody for 14 days, on judicial remand, by a special anti-terrorism court. The other accused in the case, Shafqat, has been handed over to the police on physical remand.
It is to be noted that a very tragic incident of gang rape of a woman took place on the motorway in Gujjarpura area of Lahore. Two men smashed a car window on the motorway, dragged the woman and her children out, then took them to nearby bushes and allegedly raped the woman, in front of the children.
A woman resident of Gujranwala was on her way to Gujranwala from Lahore when her car stopped on the motorway due to running out of petrol. The victim was waiting on the spot of the accident for her husband. At first, the victim contacted a relative, who called the motorway police.
Later the woman was informed on the motorway helpline that the Gujratpura belt had not been allotted to anyone yet, and the motorway police would not come. Before the arrival of the relatives, two persons raped the woman. The accused also took Rs 100,000 in cash, gold jewelery and ATM cards from the woman.
