LAHORE: Judicial magistrates sent seven accused to jail for 14 days on judicial remand over alleged involvement in gambling and immoral activities. A judicial magistrate sent on judicial remand three suspects who were arrested while gambling in Shahdra police jurisdiction. Police claimed they were caught red-handed from a gambling den.

However, the lawyers of the accused submitted their clients were implicated in forged cases by police to blackmail them and they had nothing to do with gambling. Meanwhile, another judicial magistrate sent four suspects to jail on remand for their alleged involvement in immoral activities at a guesthouse in Johar Town. Police told the court they were caught red-handed doing immoral activities. But their lawyers contended the suspects were arrested merely to show efficiency despite the fact the accused had nothing to do with this case.
