Protesters after offering funeral prayers of Osama Butt,18, son of Shafaqat Butt, a councillor of the area, gathered on the road and put traffic out of gear for several hours.
Osama was killed by the robbers when he resisted their bid to snatch money from him at a bakery near Taxila Museum.
Besides, the armed men also shot and injured Zahid Khan, a passersby, whose at a local hospital was stated to be critical.
The protesters while talking to newsmen called upon Federal Minister for Interior Ch Nisar Ali Khan to take notice of lawlessness in the area. Various ruling party councillors also criticised the local police for failing to control crimes in the area.
Robberies are order of the day in various commercial and residential areas of the city and few weeks ago, the traders’ community staged a protest on Taxila-Hattar road for several hours to register their protest against robberies in the area.
Separately, a teenage girl was abducted by three people in Taxila police area.
A man reported to police that his daughter who is first year student at local college was on his way home when three persons abducted her and shifted to unknown location.
Taxila police have registered a case and started investigation.
A group of lawyers scuffled with police on Tuesday after two attorneys were booked for allegedly helping two robbery suspects flee from Karachi’s city court, police told DawnNews.
The fight was related to an incident that happened on Monday, when Gulistan-e-Jauhar police had produced two suspects before a magistrate at the city courts to request their remand.
After the remand was granted, police said the suspects’ lawyers and relatives had helped the accused escape from the court premises.
City Courts police later lodged a case against the two lawyers and others on the complaint of an official from the Gulistan-e-Jauhar police station.
However, around 50 lawyers approached the City Courts Police Station on Tuesday afternoon to lodge a ‘counter’ First Investigation Report (FIR) against the officials of the Gulistan-e-Jauhar Police Station.
The fight broke out when police refused to register the case citing insufficient grounds, a police official said.
Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf’s (PTI) chief whip Shireen Mazari on Tuesday criticised the government’s decision to seal the Pak-Afghan border, saying it was not solution in the country’s fight against terrorism.
“Terrorism will not be finished by closing the Pakistan-Afghanistan border,” Mazari said during a session of the National Assembly.
Pakistan’s border crossings with Afghanistan had been sealed in the aftermath of a suicide bombing at the shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in Sindh ─ the deadliest in a series of recent attacks in the country.
The military leadership had claimed the attacks were carried out by militants operating from safe-havens in Afghanistan.
Mazari asked why Defence Minister Khawaja Asif had alleged a day earlier that India is conducting terrorist activities in Pakistan when Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had said during a recent visit to Turkey that Pakistan wants to do business with India.
“If terrorism can be defeated by closing the Pak-Afghan border, then why not close the Wagah border as well?” Mazari asked. “What is our foreign policy and who develops it?” she added.
Pointing to the Army’s recently-launched Operation Raddul Fasaad, Mazari also questioned why the policies that had created “fasaad” (discord) in the country had not been done away with.
