Man, son arrested for threatening girl on social media: Fayyaz Chohan
LAHORE: Punjab Information Minister Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan Thursday said that a man and his son have been arrested for threatening and harassing a girl and her family on social media.
Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan, while addressing a press conference along with CCPO Lahore Umar Shaikh and father of the victim, said that he informed the Prime Minister Imran Khan about the incident in presence of Chief Minister of Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar. The PM and CM directed to take strict action against anyone involved in the incident.
He also praised police, and said that the department performed well under the leadership of CCPO Lahore but warned that any incompetence and negligence by police officials will not be tolerated.
He also claimed that in the past, PML-N used to support land mafia and drug dealers; however, now police will take strict action against mafia present in the province.
Earlier, a girl claimed in a social media post that a boy has been harassing and threatening her that he would kill and rape her and her family. The family had lodged an FIR against the suspect and a case against him is pending in the court for the last three years.
In a threatening video, the boy demonstrates a large cache of weapons in his room and says, “We are Baloch, we don’t break hearts, but we break bones.”
