FEROZEWALA: A woman constable on Friday brought to court the same lawyer who had slapped her a day earlier in the Sheikhupura district's town, presenting him while holding the key to his handcuffs.

A day prior, Ahmed Mukhtar Advocate had violently slapped Constable Faiza Nawaz in Ferozewala Courts when she told him not to park his car at one of its checkpoints. She had requested him to remove his car, telling him that it would become an inconvenience to others but in his anger, the sexist lawyer verbally abused Nawaz, kicked her in the shins, and slapped her.

Consequently, the district police officer (DPO) for Sheikhupura, Ghazi Salahuddin, immediately took notice of the incident and registered a first information report (FIR) against Ahmed Mukhtar. Shortly thereafter, Ferozewala police arrested Mukhtar and locked him up in the jail.

The police then plastered posters of the locked-up lawyer wearing handcuffs around the town.

Today, however, the chain and keys to his handcuffs were handed over to Faiza Nawaz who, then, presented him in the court in what became a moment of sweet return to the power balance.

The local court, however, approved Mukhtar's bail request.
