MULTAN: City Police Officer (CPO) Muhammad Zubair Dareshak has ordered an inquiry on Monday against the police officials of Mumtazabad police station who were allegedly involved in the torture of the women of a family.

Police officials said that a police team of the said police station entered a house, owned by Muhammad Sajjad, and tortured the women present there. CCTV footage of the incident revealed that the policemen were pulling hair of the women and slapping them in the face.

The police alleged that the women were using the house for immoral activities. However, the owner of the house alleged that the actual reason for the assault is a land dispute between his relatives and so the relatives used their influence over the police to torture women to teach them a lesson.

The CPO has formed an inquiry committee and sought the inquiry report at the earliest possible date.
