The incident occurred about four months ago when their neighbours stormed in their house and forcefully. The intruders tried to demolish their house and were able to grab a large part of the land.

The couple met him in the court after which he guided them. A case was filed in the police station and subsequently, Mr. Saddique was able to get justice for the old Christian couple.
