Protest erupts over killing of three youths in Faisalabad
According to details, protesters pelted stones forcing the shops and business to close down.
Faisalabad Police had claimed to gun down three dacoits following a shootout on Saturday night. The suspected robbers included Ali Haider, 13, Ali Zaib, 16 and Dilawar, 18.
Heirs of the slain youngsters received the dead bodies from Allied Hospital and later laid them at Satyana Road and protested against police brutality.
The protesters chanted slogans against police and kept the road blocked for several hours.
Families of the victims told that all the three youngsters were laborers and police after arresting them from their houses shot dead in a ‘fake encounter’.
They demanded for the registration of a murder case against responsible cops, while the police, when asked, declined to comment on the issue.
