LAHORE: A local Court in Lahore hearing the Bakery beating case adjourned the hearing of the case till December 10 due to the inefficiency of the prosecutor to produce the witnesses within the Court on Friday.
Chief Minister Punjab’s son-in-law Ali Imran along with seven other accused appeared within the local Court in Cantt, Lahore on Friday. The Court resumed the case from its earlier hearing whereby it had ordered the prosecutor to present his witnesses within the Court.
Since the prosecutor was unable to produce the witnesses today as well, the Court adjourned the hearing of the case till December 10.
The bakery beating incident involved Chief Minister Punjab daughter who had visited the bakery back on October 7. The CCTV footage showed that the lady was inquiring to buy some item from the shop but was refused since the shop was closed.
Following the refusal of the bakery employee identified as Irfan, two men apparently the bodyguards of the woman, threatened Irfan before leaving the shop.
Later during the evening, the shop was approached by six to seven men who were seen beating the bakery employee after he was identified and pulled out of the shop.
