20 Shia Sent to Jail for Taking out Illegal Muharram Procession
ISLAMABAD: At least 20 Shias were sent to Adiala Jail on a judicial remand as Ramna Police arrested around 50 Mourners for taking out an illegal procession on Tuesday, police said.
A case was registered with Ramna police against the 20 individuals in response to a complaint lodged by Station House Officer (SHO) Inspector Fayaz Ranjah.
Approximately 50 people were arrested on Tuesday for taking out a Muharram procession without permission from the district magistrate, in G-10. After four organisers of the procession were arrested, police were deployed outside the house from which the procession was to be taken out.
However, mourners attempted to take a procession out from an imambargah in the area, and clashed with the police. Of the 200 or so participants, 50 were arrested. A similar incident also took place last year.
