BAHAWALNAGAR - Making mockery of the law has become a permanent feature of the local police as the policemen who were booked on the court orders are still on duty at Takhtmahal Yousaf Pehlwan police station.

A case was registered U/S 451/509 against a station house officer and five other cops over the petition of one Azra. The court had ordered the registration of a case against the police officials. Though the case was registered against them, yet they are performing their duties at the police station.

Cop bashed by lawyers:  Lawyers allegedly beat up a constable while his other colleagues played the role of silent spectators and did not tried to save him from the enraged black coats on the court ‘s premises.

Naeem Chishti, the constable, was escorting an accused to the court. Meanwhile, the constable forbade a lawyer from arranging a talk between the accused and his relatives on phone thereby enraging the lawyer who then uttered abuses and manhandled him. Later, the lawyer called his colleagues who jointly manhandled him. However, neither the police offered resistance nor took an action against the lawyers over the incident though DSP Saddar rushed to the spot after getting information.
