Christian couple: three more held over killing

The law enforcement agencies on Thursday nabbed three more suspects in connection to the killing of Christian couple who were burned to death in Kot Radha Krishan on allegations of desecrating pages of the Holy Quran. The area wore a deserted look even after fourth day of the incident with a curfew-like situation. Police on Wednesday had detained over 40 villagers who were part of the mob that brutally killed the Christian couple.

It is learnt that announcements were made from mosques on Tuesday asking villagers to gather at the Yousaf brick kiln where Shama, 25, and her husband Shahzad Masih worked as bonded labourers. Scores of charged people from three villages took out the couple from a room (where they had taken shelter) after tearing apart its roof. The mob assaulted the couple before putting them into the kiln's furnace.
