After the arrest of Humayun Masih yesterday for defiling and desecrating the Holy Quran, a group of people started gathering at the Ravi Road police station demanding that he be handed over to them.

The police dispersed the crowd which then headed for the suspects home and tried to burn a local church.

A policeman told this reporter that the mob was enraged and wanted to torch a church but police controlled the situation. Police also registered a case against the assailants and arrested some of them.

Police took Humayun into custody and also recovered the box which was partially burnt and contained sacred pages. He said the box was installed at a pole at Gulshan-i-Ravi.
