SADIQABAD - A former disabled teacher was allegedly clubbed on refusal to sell a piece of land in the Bhong police precincts here the other day.
Altaf Hussain of Mauza Ahmed Khan Dahr told media that he owns a three-acre agriculture land which the local influential people wished to purchase but he refused. “The other day, I was at my land when the accused including Shabbir, Huzoor Bakhsh, Akhtar, Faqir Bakhsh, Sher Muhammad and two others came and beaten me with wooden sticks,” he alleged. He said that the accused fled, threatening him with dire consequences after his cries alerted neighbours and they rushed for his rescue.
