HORRIFIC! Woman chops off boy's hand in Pakistan for asking salary
In an another gruesome case of atrocities on children, a 13-year-old's hand was chopped off in Pakistan after he allegedly demanded his salary from his employer.
Lahore: In an another gruesome case of atrocities on children, a 13-year-old's hand was chopped off in Pakistan after he allegedly demanded his salary from his employer.
According to media reports, the boy, identified as Irfan, was employed at Shafqat Bibi's house in Safdarabad at a salary of Rs 3,000, his mother Jannat Bibi told the police.
"Last week Shafqat Bibi got furious with Irfan when he demanded his salary. She cut his right hand with a fodder cutting machine to teach him a lesson that he demands salary but doesn't complete his job of feeding the cattle," she said.
The incident took place in Sheikhupura village, some 50 kilometres from Lahore.
The boy was rushed to a local hospital where his condition is stated to be critical, his mother Jannat Bibi told media.
However, what was even more surprising that the Safdarabad police refused to register a case when the family approached them following which Jannat moved to the district and sessions court that directed the police to register a case against those involved in the incident.
On Wednesday, the police registered a case against Shafqat Bibi, her brother Zafar Tarrar and two others. Later, her brother was arrested.
The Punjab's Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has sought a report from the police about the incident. He said the culprits involved in torture and amputation of the boy be arrested and should be dealt with according to the law.
