District Police Officer Rana Tahir Rehman Khan of Pakistan's Narowal district has denied reports of a youth's death due to violence.

He termed the reports as baseless.

The DPO told Dawn that the youth was injured in the violence by the villagers at Badala Kohlian in Zafarwal but he was very much alive.

He said Lesser Kalan Police Station had registered an FIR against 14 suspects, including Hafiz Rahat, Attiq, Tayyab, Qaiser and Atif, on the complaint of Arsalan Mukhtar and arrested them within 24 hours.

He said an investigation into the incident would be done as per merit.

According to reports, a 20-year-old man was tortured to death with iron rods and his body was burnt at a village in Zafarwal city.

Zeeshan alias Shani, a resident of village Baran Kalan, had gone to meet a girl in her village Badala Kohlian in tehsil Zafarwal at night when he was caught by the girl’s family, reported Dawn News.

About 15 to 20 people started torturing the youth.

According to the eyewitnesses, Muhammad Razzaq and Muhammad Afzal, the influential people of village Badala Kohliyan had brutally tortured the girl too, reported Dawn News.
