The Islamabad Police have booked four persons for public drunkenness and disorderly behaviour.

Humza | 5 years ago | Reply @Parvez: Do you not know that drunk and disorderly behavior is punishable even in countries where alcohol is legal? If you think enforcing laws is an excise you squeeze money then you don't understand laws and public safety. The police should do their job in accordance with the law.
