Pakistani leader gets hostess arrested for delaying water

Islamabad, June 17 : A provincial leader of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) allegedly slapped a bus hostess for not serving water swiftly and later had her arrested for making death threat.


The incident occurred as Nighat Sheikh, a member of Punjab provincial assembly of the PML-N, was travelling by a private bus from Islamabad to Lahore and asked bus hostess to bring her water. Though she complied but the leader turned furious over the delay and beat her up, Online news agency reported Sunday.

As passengers intervened and sought a legal action against the lawmaker, the driver took the bus to a local police station. But the PML-N leader managed to lodge a complaint against the hostess, accusing her of making death threats.

A case was filed and police arrested the hostess girl. She was later released over insufficient evidence.

Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has asked the police to submit a report.
