LAHORE: A madrassah student in Lahore has been tortured to death by a qari (Quran teacher) on Sunday. The Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has taken notice of the incident and sought a report from the Capital City Police Officer (CCPO).
According to the FIR filed by the victim’s father Mohammad Shafiq at the Shadbagh police station, his 12 year old son Mohammad Jamil was studying the Quran at Madrassah Aziziya from Nazim-e-Ahla (Mohtmam) Qari Muhammad Jameel and an unknown teacher for at least four months.
Both the qari and teacher escaped before the police raided the madrassah. The madrassah has been sealed while a search operation is under way for the escapees.
The FIR further stated that, a few days ago, Jamil complained to his mother about severe abdominal pain, caused by the qari’s alleged torture, after which he was taken to four different private and government hospitals for treatment but eventually succumbed to the injuries, breathing his last late Sunday night.
