Police ‘framing’ innocent people

PESHAWAR, Oct 25: Former MNA and leader of Jamaat-i-Islami from Chitral Maulana Abdul Akbar has accused the district administration of arresting the people for raising voice against the illegal cutting of forests in the district. Speaking at a press conference at Peshawar Press Club on Thursday, he said the people holding protest demonstrations against the timber mafia had been declared criminals. He alleged the local administration had used force against peaceful demonstrators, who had done nothing wrong but raised voice against the growing deforestation. He said the police had sprung into action just before Eidul Azha to fleece the poor villagers, demanding of chief minister and high court chief justice to take notice of the matter.-Dawn]]>
