Lahore, May 19 (ANI): Hundreds of protesters in Nankana Sahib demonstrated outside the Punjab Governor's residence demanding immediate action against a criminal gang, which has killed about a dozen people in the region.

Angry protestors blocked the road in front of the Governor's House for several hours with the body of one Muhammed Shafi, who is said to have been killed by the criminal gang.

Later, on the assurance of local Member of National Assembly (MNA) Rana Arshad the mob agreed to end their protest.

Arshad assured the aggrieved family that the provincial government had already announced a head money of 300,000 rupees on the accused and that he would personally pursue the case to ensure that justice is delivered.

Shafi's close relative Shahid Nawaz told The Daily Times that they have filed several cases against one Sarfaraz Ishtiaq, a noted criminal of the region who is believed to have murdered hafi, but the police have failed to take any action in this regard. (ANI)
