A Pakistani man was allegedly beaten and forced to drink urine over a minor dispute relating to a game of snooker.
The incident happened at a snooker club in the village of Mangwal-Zafarwal near Punjab, Pakistan.
The victim was identified as 26-year-old Shamraiz Ahmed. He claimed that he was beaten by five men, they then stripped him naked and made him drink their urine.
According to the FIR, the incident took place on June 8, 2019. However, the victim only registered the case on June 11.
It was heard that an argument involving Shamraiz and the suspects broke out at a snooker club. They rowed over who would take the first go.
The argument became heated when explicit language was exchanged.
The five men began assaulting the victim before taking him to a nearby townhouse.
At the townhouse, some of the men beat him more severely and ripped off his clothes. Others filmed the incident and uploaded it to social media.
The FIR also alleged that the five men forced the Pakistani man to drink their urine and sexually assaulted him.
The suspects also lured the Pakistani man’s father, Muhammad Rafique, to the townhouse where they also brutally beat him.
Some of the local people gathered outside the townhouse after hearing cries for help. They managed to get the victims out while the suspects fled the scene.
Before they left, the suspects threatened the victim to not report the snooker incident otherwise there would be serious consequences.
Shamraiz suffered serious injuries and as a result, he was taken to the hospital in a critical condition.
His condition soon stabilised and doctors said he was no longer in danger.
Shamraiz filed a complaint with Zafarwal police and narrated the ordeal. Police officers registered a case against the five men.
Police have identified the men as Waris Ali, Muhammad Ahmed, Muhammad Bilal, Ehsan and Muzaffar.
While a case has been registered, no arrests have been made.
In a similar incident which took place in India, a journalist alleged that he was beaten by two members of the Government Railway Police (GRP) in Uttar Pradesh.
He had been reporting on a train which had derailed when he was confronted by the two officers.
The man was beaten and locked up. The officers then allegedly urinated into his mouth.
The incident was filmed and this led to the man’s release. The Uttar Pradesh Police later suspended the GRP’s Station House Officer and a constable.
