LAHORE: Two men and two women were manhandled by the owner of a marble cutting factory and his employees in Ichhra Police Station limits Sunday. Ironically, the SHO did not immediately maintain law and order but gave time to the accused persons to thrash the victims to their satisfaction. They also broke arms of two women and critically injured a man in the presence of police. According to witnesses, the situation could have been controlled had the SHO taken quick action against the culprits who beat up the women in front of him. The locals said dust generated from marble cutting had made their lives miserable. The injured persons identified as Nasir Butt, Nazia, Afshan, Arshad and Asghar, were admitted to a hospital.
