Our Correspondent August 07, 2014

LAHORE: An additional district and sessions judge sought comments from the Shadman SHO on a petition seeking registration of case against a man for allegedly harassing a woman. Petitioner Razia told the court that Bashir, a neighbour, teased her whenever she stepped into the street. “I have warned Bashir not to tease me several times, but he has not stopped. A few days ago, he was standing at a square and again shouted at me,” she told the court. Razia said that she had complained to the Shadman police about Bashir and asked them to register a case. However, she said, they had not listened to her. She appealed to the court to direct the Shadman SHO to register the case.
