A Christian man was captured by police in Pakistan’s Gujrat region on charges of blasphemy, the media investigated Saturday.
The police on Friday captured the man, who has a place with Kharian tehsil and fills in as a sweeper at a private clinic, after Nadeem Ahmed, the owner of an electric shop in Dinga town, enrolled a case against him for articulating provocative comments about the Holy Prophet.
Ahmed said in his complaint that his companion Ishtiaq Ahmed Jalali had on Thursday enlightened him regarding the comments.
Ahmed claimed that when he spoke to the sweeper to check the claim, he rehashed the comments.
The police moved the suspect to another area as opposed to keeping him in the lock-up after bits of gossip started to flow that religious gatherings expected to assault the police headquarters.
Gujrat Superintendent of Police Maaz Zafar went to Dinga after the complaint.
He disclosed to Dawn that the circumstance was under control and the police were watching the town.
