GUJRANWALA: A policeman in Gujranwala was punished in public by his superior for reaching late for the flag-raising ceremony on Independence Day, Express News reported on Tuesday.

All personnel were ordered to report for duty at 7am for the flag hoisting ceremony but when one constable came late, his gate in charge made him do sit-ups and beat him with a stick as punishment.

Dozens of people, including passersby and other police personnel, witnessed the act.

The country is celebrating its 65th Independence Day today, which started off with a 31-gun salute in Islamabad and a 21-gun salute in Karachi, Quetta, Lahore and Peshawar.

Correction: An earlier version of the story incorrectly stated "66th" instead of "65th". The error is regretted.
