ATC sends 25 on judicial remand


The Rawalpindi Police have taken 25 persons into custody for damaging private and government properties in the protests against the blasphemous film on “Youm-e-Ishq-e-Rasool” day observed on Friday.
A manager of a private transport company filed a complaint in the Pirwadhai Police Station, saying that Ahmed Khan and Muhammad Raqeeb, along with his dozens of accomplices attacked and damaged their vehicles under the cover of protests against the blasphemous movie. On the complaint, police registered a case and arrested 25 persons including Ahmed Khan and Muhammad Raqeeb.
Meanwhile, the Sadiqabad Police also registered a case against unidentified demonstrators for damaging private and public property, a police van and a Superintendent Police’s (SP) vehicle.
It is quite relevant to mention here that the Islamabad Police had also started monitoring the videos of the protest demonstrations to identify and arrest the miscreants. According to police sources, police had contacted NADRA in this regard and the identified troublemakers would be booked in different cases under the Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA).
