A lawyer, who is also a member of Punjab Bar Council (PBC) was brought in the court on Friday by the same lady constable whom he slapped a day earlier.
A day before, advocate Ahmed Mukhtar tried to park his car at an undesignated spot outside Ferozewala Courts, upon which, constable Faiza Nawaz urged him to park the vehicle somewhere else as parking it here would cause trouble for others. Ahmed got angrt on this and started hurling abuses, later he slapped the constable across her face.
District police officer (DPO) Sheikhupura, Ghazi Salahuddin, promptly took notice of this incident and directed police to register a first information report (FIR) against Ahmed.
Acting on DPO’s orders, Ferozewala police arrested Mukhtar and locked him up in jail.
Police also pasted the posters of the lawyer on important streets of the city in which he could be seen wearing handcuffs.
On Friday the same constable he slapped presented with him in the court by holding the chain of his handcuffs.
The local court, however, approved Mukhtar’s bail request
