DERA GHAZI KHAN: Video showing mob justice surfaces

DERA GHAZI KHAN (D G KHAN): A video of an incident of mob justice came to the surface on Tuesday, reviving memories of a ghastly lynching incident in Sialkot in the first week of Ramazan.


On March 18, Abdullah Chandia shot dead Naseem Abbas, a cloth merchant and local office-bearer of the Tehrik-i-Jafria, in Choti Zaireen for unknown reasons. Later, he surrendered to police.

A mob chased Abdullah to the Choti police station and came out with his body. The mob celebrated the man’s death and people lifted DSP Iqbal Chandia onto their shoulders.

Later, the mob burnt the body.

Abdullah’s family alleged that he had been murdered by police. On his family’s plea, the DSP and SHO Noor Ahmad Chandia were booked for murder.

Another case was registered against about 1,500 people.

However, both officials were absolved of the murder in departmental inquiries.

It is said that the footage shown by TV channels on Tuesday was a part of police inquiries.

Before this incident, police were suspicious of Abdullah’s activities and monitoring his movement.

Different TV channels aired the footage of the entire incident.

Regional Police Officer Ahmad Mubarak Ahmad said the footage could incite sectarian violence in the district.

DSP Iqbal, who is currently serving in Dera Ghazi Khan town, said there was nothing new in the footage and he had been absolved during departmental inquiries.
