The main accused in the recent vandalism at Gurdwara Nankana Sahib in Pakistan’s Punjab province was arrested and charged under a non-bailable section of the stringent anti-terrorism act and blasphemy, a senior police officer said today.
The suspect, identified as Imran Chishti, is the elder brother of Mohammad Hassan who married a teenage Sikh girl in September last year after allegedly abducting and converting her to Islam, triggering a controversy.
“We have arrested Imran Chishti, a government employee, under terrorism and blasphemy charges. He has been booked under various sections of Pakistan Penal Code,” an officer said. — PTI
