The unidentified man, described by one police
official as mentally disabled, was brutally tortured
by the mob while police efforts to protect the
 man failed as the crowd turned violent.
BAHAWALPUR: In an incident of mob justice, hundreds of people accused a deranged man of sacrilege, beat the blasphemer and burnt him alive in southern Punjab, police said on Wednesday.
The incident took place in Chanighot area of Bahawalpur on Tuesday evening. Residents saw a man throwing pages from the Holy Quran onto the street. Local police took him into custody and put him in the lockup.
The news spread like a forest fire in the neighbourhood – and soon a frenzied mob gathered outside the Chanighot police station baying for blood.
Police couldn’t stand up to the furious and violent crowd who got hold of the blasphemer and started giving him what he deserved.
Some officers fired tear gas canisters to disperse the mob – but the emotionally charged people refused to hand over the alleged blasphemer and instead turned against the police officers, according to Ghulam Mohiuddin Gujjar, the station house officer (SHO) of Chanighot police station.
Nine police officers, including SHO Gujjar and DSP Rana Naveed Mumtaz, were injured while trying to "rescue" the filthy blasphemer.
The mob burnt down several police vehicles, including DSP Mumtaz’s four-wheeler, before getting hold of the man.
Once the blasphemer was in the mob’s custody, he was dragged to the Chanighot Chakar (roundabout), where he had desecrated the Holy Quran, doused him in petrol and set him on fire.
