Lahore: A local court judge on Wednesday acquitted Ali Imran, the son-in-law of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, in a bakery torture case.
Judicial Magistrate Munawar Hussain acquitted Imran after the bakery servant gave a statement in the court that he (Imran) was not involved in the case and was not present at the place of the incident.
On October 7, a woman came to the shop and asked for a cake; however, the shop was closed for cleaning. The employees asked her to come later when the shop would be open. Two men, who appeared to be bodyguards of the woman, misbehaved with an employee named Irfan and left with warnings of dire consequences.
On the same day, the guards visited the bakery along with another man, identified the worker and escorted him outside the shop. Around six to seven Elite Force officials, who were present outside the bakery, started beating up Irfan and threatened him further.
