LAHORE: A man who was burned to death, by the mob in Youhanabad neighborhood of Lahore after twin suicide bombings on churches, was not a terrorist, it is learnt.

Naeem’s brother approached the police station in Nashtar Colony and submitted plea to register a case. While a victim’s friend Rana Muhammad Abbas has termed government responsible for killing of Naeem.
