On January 23, a local landlord brutally tortured farmers in Shujabad Tehsil.
Reportedly, farmers Abdul Ghafoor, Zahoor and Shakoor were constructing a wall in Jhok Musa adjacent to local landlord Muhammad Ameen’s house. However, Ameen had reservations over the construction as he believed that it occupied a part of his land.
In a fit of rage, the landlord and his accomplices, identified as Muhammad Naseem, Muhammad Asif and Jaffar, barged into the home of the farmers and brutally tortured them and the women present.
