The Ferozewala Police registered a case against five lawyers under various sections on charges of torturing an ASI on court premises here the other day.

The Muridke Sadar Police led by an ASI Asghar, produced two suspects, Atif and Adeel, on robbery charges in the court of magistrate Nasira Munir to obtain their physical remand.

Suspects’ counsel Rana Gulfam took the plea that police had implicated them in a fabricated case.

During arguments, harsh words between the counsel and prosecutors and the ASI were exchanged. When both sides came out of the court, the lawyer and the ASI again exchanged arguments.

Meanwhile, four other lawyers — Adnan Ali, Tahir Yousaf, Nasir Mustaqeem and Shahzad — also got involved in the scuffle. The lawyers thrashed the ASI and tore his uniform.

Later in a meeting, the Ferozewala Bar expressed resentment over the attitude of the ASI. They demanded registration of a case against ASI Asghar and three other constables.
