The district police officer (DPO) Kasur was being removed and the superintendent of police (SP) investigation Kasur surrendered.

The SP was charge sheeted and being proceeded against, whereas the deputy superintendent of police (DSP) and the station house officer (SHO) were suspended and a formal probe had been ordered under the additional inspector general (AIG).
