GUJRANWALA - A man, who survived an attempt on his life, has appealed to the Punjab chief minister and the IG Police to provide him security in the face of serious threats to his life and his family. According to Muhammad Zaman, a resident of Gujranwala, he was attacked by unidentified persons various times.

He said that he had received life threats on the phone several times and has reported the incident to the Sambrial Police, but in vain.

Mr Zaman said that the accused had warned them of dire consequences if they ever dare to appear before the court to produce any evidence. The Sambrial Police have registered a case against the accused and started investigation.

The victim has appealed to the Punjab chief minister, the Punjab IG Police and Gujranwala RPO to provide him security. He appealed to the IG Police to order the police trace and arrest the accused.
