Five men who tortured a motorcycle mechanic in Madina Town area were arrested in Dijkot on Saturday.

According to the police, four days ago, Zain Ali Shah, a resident of Canal Road, Chak No. 204, reported that he was abducted on a motorcycle from his shop by Asghar Ali, Mithu Shani, Atiq and Haji. The suspects also made a video while they were torturing him.

After the video came to the light, Madina Town police registered a case against five people including a man and his two sons and started raids to find them.

The police said that 24-year-old Zain Ali Shah, had set up a motorcycle mechanic’s shop and was allegedly in contact with the daughter of one of the suspects.

His sons Mithu and Haji, along with Shani and Atiq and others came to his shop and abducted him at gunpoint. They took him to a place near the local canal where the suspects tortured him with sticks and iron wires and punched him.

Minor, differently-abled woman ‘molested’

Shah went down on his knees and begged for his life.

The complainant claimed Asghar Ali’s daughter wanted to marry him but her family had got her engaged elsewhere, after which she had visited her workshop.

On the complaint of Shafaqat Ali Shah, father of the mechanic, Madina Town police registered a case against the five suspects.

The DSP People’s Colony and SHO Madina Town conducted raids in different areas and arrested the five suspects who were later remanded in police custody. CPO Sohail Chaudhry said no one was allowed to take the law into their own hands and the case would be pursued in accordance with the legal provisions.
