VEHARI: A police inspector allegedly tortured his wife on Tuesday over a property dispute at Chak 98-EB in Sheikh Fazal police limits, some 45-km from here.

Reports said inspector Amjad Chishti would torture his wife as she could not get her share from her father`s property.

Amjad`s daughter Ammara Chishti told Dawn that a few days back after death of her grandfather Falak Sher Chishti, her father forced her mother for property share and again tortured her mother. She said four days back her mother Ashfa Fatima received injuries and was admitted to Burewala THQ hospital.

She said Sheikh Fazal police on July 3 registered a case against her father Amjad and Tahir, Hameed and Farooq Chisti who were also allegedly involved in the torture.

She said despite registration of first information report, police seem reluctant to arrest her father.

She said: `We have left our house after received threatening calls from my father and are staying at my aunt`s house at a nearby village.

Ammara Chishti said she filed an application to the Multan regional police officer and the chief minister but in vain. She said her father Amjad tortured her mother several times during the last three months.

When contacted Station House Officer Shahid Ishaq said police registered a case against Amjad Chisthi and three other accomplices under sections 354 and 34 of the Pakistan Penal Code. Further investigation is under way.
