Christians protest against police on kidnapping of 14 years Christian girl girl Asma in Lahore.
17 Aug 2005
A large gathering of Christians on Tuesday protested against Baghbanpuraâ€™s assistant superintendent of police (ASP)-Investigation for allegedly supporting a kidnapper.
The protestors chanted slogans against police and appealed to higher authorities for justice. They said that Muhammad Abbas, a resident of Gohawa village, had kidnapped 14-year-old Christian girl Asma. They claimed that Asma's family had appealed to the South Cantt police station to register a case but had been denied. They added that Abbas's uncle Bashir had assured the family during a 'Panchaiyat' that the girl would be returned in a few days. However, Bashir later produced a fake marriage certificate saying Abbas and Asma had wedded. Asma's brother Nadeem Masih had tried to contact higher authorities but Bashir and Abbas shot him and fled, said the protestors.
