They charged her a false allegation of blasphemy and the attendants and male staff also rushed there and tied her with ropes. Police enquired and found that it was a personal dispute. Due to mob’s pressure police registered FIR (# 74/21) under Section 295-C of the Pakistan Penal Code mandates the death penalty for committing blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad.
