SIALKOT/ KAMOKI:


Two boys were reported assaulted in two separate incidents on Thursday.


Police said Ali Kalia took his 16-year-old friend Akbar* to a drug dealer’s house, where four unidentified men were present. They said the boy was attacked by the men who fled after assaulting him.

Akbar was taken to Government Sardar Begum Hospital.

On the application of the father of the boy, Ahsan Ali, the police of Naikapur police station registered a complaint but nobody has been arrested so far.

Nazir told The Express Tribune that Hajipura police and Naika police were confused about jurisdiction and had taken a long time to register the complaint.

He alleged that the police were protecting the drug-dealer, Qamar, who was one of the suspects.

Naikapura SHO Sabir Chattha said that the police was investigating the case. He rejected claims of the victim’s family. He said the police would leave no stone unturned to ensure that justice was served.

Separately, a man allegedly assaulted a seven-year-old boy in Kamoki on Sunday.

Cantt police said Nadira Bibi lived with her son Zaryab Khan in Muhammad Nagar.

They said her tenant Mubarak Ali’s son Shehzad aka Bhaalo had assaulted the boy when he went to buy some things from his shop. His mother said he left her to explore the store but when he did not return after a while, she began looking for him. Police said his mother found him lying in the corner of a shop, unconscious.

They said when the woman confronted Ali, he threatened her and told her to stay in her portion of the house. Police said the woman told them he would not let her leave the house and kept watch over her for six hours.

Police said after several hours, the woman managed to go to Chandala post where the post in-charge Shabbir Muhammad directed her to Cantt police station.

A case was registered and police started investigations. No arrests have been made so far in the case so far.
