LAHORE: Justice Abdul Sami Khan of Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday ordered the Nishter Town SHO to produce on Thursday (today) all suspects detained for their alleged involvement in the Youhanabad lynching. MA Joseph and others had filed the petition, alleging that police had taken their family members in custody without any evidence. “Police are not allowing us to meet the detained men. They are also not producing them in any court,” they said. The petitioners claimed that the arrested men had no link with the lynching. Their counsel requested the court to direct authorities to find the detained men and set them free.
