LAHORE: Indictment charges were framed against Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif’s son-in-law Ali Imran, implicated in a case regarding the torture of an employee at a bakery in Lahore, Express News reported Tuesday.

The case was heard in Judicial Magistrate Munawwar Hussain’s court. The prosecution department produced a charge-sheet accusing Imran and six personnel of police of assaulting the bakery employee.

The prosecution department said that the charges had been proved according to the CCTV footage obtained and aired by TV channels.

The court summoned Imran and the complainant on November 30, when indictment charges will be read out to the chief minister’s son-in-law and then it will be up to him to defend or accept them.

On October 7, a woman came to the shop and asked for a cake; however, the shop was closed for cleaning. The employees asked her to come later when the shop would be open. Two men, who appeared to be bodyguards of the woman, misbehaved with an employee named Irfan and left with warnings of dire consequences.

On the same day, the guards visited the bakery along with another man, identified the worker and escorted him outside the shop. Around six to seven Elite Force officials, who were present outside the bakery, started beating up Irfan and threatened him further.
