Police thwarted an enraged mob’s attempt to lynch a man accused of blasphemy in Muzaffargarh, arriving just in time to take the victim to a secure, undisclosed location. The man was allegedly spotted burning pages of the Holy Quran in front of a mosque. The complainant in the case confronted the man before locking him in a room and calling police.
When police arrived, a mob had already gathered at the scene. Police were able to break through the crowd and retrieve the suspect, taking him into custody at an undisclosed safe location.
Alipur Saddar police registered a blasphemy case against the man, who Station House Officer (SHO) Ghulam Mujtaba said seemed to be mentally unwell, although police were still awaiting a medical report.
A group of 25 to 35 people later showed up at the Alipur Saddar police station in search of the man, but were turned away, nor was the man found there.
