Roohi Bano revealed that Khurram Shehzad had attacked her inside her house last night. Ms Bano was immediately taken to Services Hospital last night, where she received four stitches behind the ear. The actress was shortly freed from the hospital.
Roohi Bano later lodged a complaint with Gulberg police and subsequently a case was registered against Khurram Shehzad under section 506 of Pakistan Penal Code.
Punjab CM Shahbaz Sharif had taken notice of the incident and sought a report from the DIG Operations.
A special police team headed by DSP Gulberg Qadir Bajwa was formed to probe the incident, which timely acted and nabbed the accused within hours to follow.
Soon after the arrest, police whisked Shehzad away to an undisclosed location for further interrogation.
Some sources told that the assailant was a friend of Bano’s late son.
