HAFIZABAD

An 80-year-old woman Barkat Bibi, wife of Fazal Din, a resident of Kot Sajana who was tortured allegedly by the Saddr Police cops a few days back, succumbed to her injuries in DHQ Hospital here on Monday.

The police have already registered a case against ASI Muhammad Ramzan and eleven others who had allegedly intruded into the house of Fazal Din in village Kot Sajan few days back and pressurised them not to give evidence in a murder case. When the family refused to accede to their request, ASI Ramzan and 11 others allegedly pounced upon them with clubs and guns’ butts, seriously injuring Barkat Bibi and four other women. However, other injured women are in stable condition.

The aggrieved family have called upon the DPO, RPO and the Punjab IG Police to order early arrest of the accused cops including the ASI to provide them deterrent punishment and also to revive confidence of people in the police.
