Sheikhupura, April 18, 2017: A 21-year-old Christian man was reportedly assaulted and burnt with hot iron rods, allegedly by the family of a Muslim woman in Sheikhupura district, for having “friendship” with her.

The victim had received severe burn wounds and after failing to get proper medical care in Sheikhupura, he was shifted to Mayo Hospital, Lahore, on Sunday for further medical treatment.

The incident happened earlier this month and a police case has also been lodged against the father and brothers of the woman, who were reportedly against the friendship between the two and allegedly tortured Ansar Masih, mentioned PTI.

According to the First Information Report (FIR) undersigned by Masih’s sister in Sheikhupura’s Saddar police station, Masih first established contact with the woman two years ago and their friendship grew with time and they often spoke on phone and Masih would also visit the woman neighbourhood to meet her.  When the woman’s family learned of the friendship, her father, Manzoor, and her brothers called Masih’s father asking him to tell his son to stay away from her, warning them of dire consequences if their instructions were not followed.

On April 1, Ansar’s mother sent him to run an errand in the woman’s neighborhood where Ansar was allegedly kidnapped by the accused and his two sons, the report stated, adding the three unclothed him, beat him and burned him using hot iron rods and then the accused had brought Ansar to his house and told his family that he had been in a traffic accident.

Bengaluru: Indian spinner Amit Mishra was on Tuesday arrested in connection with an assault case lodged against him by a Mumbai-based film producer.

Mishra was taken into custody by Bengaluru police after a three-hour long interrogation session. He was, however, later granted bail.

“Following his arrest, Amit Mishra has been released. It was a bailable offence,” said Bengaluru DCP Sandeep Patil.

A police case had been filed against Mishra on the complaint of assault by a Mumbai-based film producer and he had been asked to appear for questioning, police said on Tuesday.

“We have filed an FIR (first information report) against Mishra on the basis of the complaint Vandana filed on September 27 and issued a notice asking him to appear before our investigating officer within a week,” Bengaluru Deputy Commissioner of Police Sandeep Patil told reporters.

According to the complaint, Mishra abused and assaulted Vandana with a kettle at a five-star hotel on September 25.

“We have also sent a copy of the notice to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in Mumbai, as Mishra was attending a preparation camp the board held in the city for the Indian team,” Patil said.

As Vandana had known Mishra over the last three years, she went to meet him at the hotel where he was staying during the camp.

The right-arm spinner plays for the Indian team in Tests, One-Days and T20s.

Another UP journalist becomes a victim of assault

Lucknow: A young man was severely beaten up, tied behind a motorcycle and dragged, leaving him seriously injured in Pilibhit, police said on Monday.haidar

While reports suggested that the victim Haider was a journalist, district officials denied it. Even the district magistrate O.N. Singh maintained that the injured person was not a journalist.

Principal Secretary (Information) Navneet Sehgal too denied an attack on any scribe and said that reports of a spurt in crimes against journalists were “unfounded”.

The condition of the victim – since admitted in a local hospital – is said to be “serious but out of danger”.

Police have arrested two persons – Sudhir and Pyare – for the attack and are trying to find the remaining accused.

Haider said he received an invite on phone on Sunday night to cover an event. After he reached the place, four people beat him up badly, put a chain around his neck, tied him to a motorbike and dragged him for over 100 metres.

After the attackers fled the spot, passers-by informed police and took a seriously injured Haider to hospital.

Officials said an initial probe indicated that the attack was an outcome of a “land dispute” between two brothers, Keshav and Anand.

Haider is said to have intervened in the dispute on behalf of Keshav, angering the other side.

The attack comes days after a social media journalist was allegedly set on fire in Shahjahanpur by henchmen of a minister of state in the Akhilesh Yadav government and another incident in which a journalist was shot at in Kanpur.

Shahjahanpur’s social media journalist Jagendra Singh, who died after sustaining 60 percent burn injuries during a police raid at his house on June 1, had before his death blamed minister Ram Murti Verma and his henchmen for his plight. The family is since demanding a CBI inquiry into the incident.

Meanwhile, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) expressed concern over the “spurt in attacks on journalists” and questioned the alleged “silence” of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on the issue.

“It is strange that top leadership of the ruling Samajwadi Party (SP) is out to defend and protect the accused minister while lumpen elements are targeting the media fraternity,” said Vijay Pathak, a spokesman of the state BJP.

The chief minister should not only express his views on the serious issue but also act promptly against all people involved in crimes against the fourth estate, he added. (IANS)
