On Tuesday, a teenager passed away night after he was beaten for fighting a robbery attempt in Gujranwala three days ago.
The dead was a student of class nine.
After his death, his parents performed a protest on Grand Truck Road (GT-Road). They blocked the road and reserved their son’s body on the GT-Road. Traffic persisted blocked for several hours.
The teen’s cousin said that two robbers had stopped him and demanded valuables. The teen, however, had nothing on him and because of that, the two robbers tortured him and then threw him in the fields in Baddoki Gosaian.
The suspects have yet to be detained.
The family called off their protest after the police guaranteed them that the suspects will be recognized and detained soon.

MPA Bilal Tarar said that the family has seen a lot of inequality. “They have the right to stage a protest. No one asked them when their son was being treated. Even the police’s behavior to them is condemnable.”
A case has yet to be registered.
