SAC Lahore is reporting that a few of its activists in Punjab College, Lahore were rounded up by about 10 college members and given a severe thrashing. The SAC volunteers were the same people who were served up a thrashing a day earlier as well, Defying the oppression he showed up once again at the college to distribute leaflets for today’s rally at Nasir Bagh Lahore.
The SAC volunteers were rounded up in the presence of the Principle of the college (Mr. Sohail) who immediately called in thugs and had them beaten, after 15-20 minutes of thrashing they lead them into a room and resumed the assault to finally let release them after two hours of beatings. Upon their release they immediately went to the local police station who refused to register an FIR but instead the police were far more threatening towards them.
I am told that after some strong pressures the SAC has finally registered an FIR at Model Town Police Station in presence of SSP who is now leading the bunch to Punjab College to arrest the offenders. A show down is likely and updates to follow as the story develops
It must be remembered that Punjab College is controlled by activists of PML-Q (referred to as Qatil League [killer league]) and the college is owned by the Nazim Mian Amir.
