Vandalism at Gurdwara Nankana Sahib in Pakistan’s Punjab province was arrested

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
