Good, about time someone taught Punjab Police a lesson, they should make an example of these thugs using the law as it should be used. This will setup a clear example for the next officers taking charge, same should be done to the FIA and Islamabad Police goons who are now bending the law to their whims.

i hope removed from post means fired from job and not suspension. Overall good thing, PTI needs to create fear, so that institutions like these dont get involved or used against pti!
