Sunni Tehreek workers raid police station


LAHORE – Dozens of annoyed protestors broke into a North Cantonment police station on Wednesday and held hostage the police officers for several hours. Police officers, requesting not to be named, said the protestors of Sunni Tehreek had staged a protest demonstration against the statements of Vatican Pope Benedict when police officers intercepted the demonstrators.
“An ambulance was stuck in the demonstration upon which we approached to rescue the ambulance. The Sunni Tehreek protestors attacked our police station in retaliation,” a Sub-Inspector said. According to his statement, the protestors slapped his colleague SI Ashfaq besides torturing him.
He said the protestors have also submitted an application urging to register an FIR against Ashfaq. The SHO Arham however said no case could be registered before knowing the facts. Investigations are underway.
