Demo against non-payment of pending dues

KASUR-A large number of farmers gathered in jurisdiction of Pattoki City police and staged a protest demonstration against a sugar mills management for not paying their pending dues here the other day.

The protest was organised under the auspices of Pakistan Kissan Ittehad (PKI). Led by Inayatullah, the farmers set ablaze tyres, blocked road for traffic and demanded the management of Pattoki Sugar Mills pay their pending dues. "The collective amount of our pending dues is Rs40 million," they claimed. They vowed to stage protests on a regular basis if their dues were not paid. A motorway police inspector negotiated with the protesting farmers and assured them a solution to their problems upon which they ended their protest.

CITIZENS ROBBED: Dacoits pointed guns at three citizens and robbed them of cash, cell phone and other valuables in different incidents here the other day. Ghulam Mustafa submitted an application to Kasur Saddr police stating that he, along with Ali Raza, was on the way to Pakki Haveli when three unidentified dacoits intercepted them at gunpoint and deprived them of cash, cell phone and other valuables.

"They also snatched valuables from Irshad-the man following us," he stated. The police registered a case and were investigating.
