SIALKOT: The Sialkot police have further tightened the security of the grieved family of two lynched youths in Sialkot.

The family has been faced with growing life threats by some unknown accused who are allegedly trying to prevent them from pursuing the case further.

The murdered youths' uncle, Muhammad Zarar Butt, said that the accused were threatening the family members and children of the grieved family and that the Sialkot police was changing the direction of the investigations of this case to save the accused police officials nominated in this case.

The grieved family has urged the Chief Justice Supreme Court of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhary to take serious notice of this critical situation.
