MIRPURKHAS – Former PML-N MNA and lawyer Krishan Bheel was beaten up by  fellow lawyers over his derogatory remarks about Islam on Saturday.

Senior advocate Dost Mohammad Kolachi and other lawyers suddenly started thrashing the former legislator at the bar while they were having a chat over political leaders. However, Bheel managed to escape from the scene. Afterwards, lawyers boycotted court proceedings and reached a police station to get a case against him registered. Police, however, refused to lodge any case. Dost Kolachi, meanwhile, told a group of reporters that an application for the registration of a blasphemy case against Bheel had been submitted to the court.
