LAHORE:


An additional district and sessions judge on Wednesday sought comments from the anti-corruption director after hearing a petition against police officials for releasing a gang leader accused of pricking inmates of a mental hospital and selling their blood.


Muhammad Iqbal said Amir Bashir, the released man, had been heading a gang of mental hospital employees. He said the gang would prick inmates and sell their white blood cells to hospitals and laboratories in the city. Other members of the gang have been identified as Shahzad, Arif and Nasir Javed. Iqbal said Services Chowki In-charge Shahab and Constable Faisal and Constable Sharif had caught Amir Bashir red handed but had let him off after he had bribed them with Rs90,000. The petitioner said he had urged Shadman station house officer to take action against Bashir but he had protected him. Iqbal asked the court to direct the anti-corruption director to register a case against the men.
