Lahore November 16, 2007: HRCP has been seriously grieved on receiving information on the brutal treatment of women protestors by police at a pro-Imran demonstration yesterday. The demonstration was held in Barkat Market, Lahore, against the imposition of the emergency rule and the arrest of Imran Khan, chief of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaaf, and his party workers.

The police baton-charged all demonstrators, including women protestors, at the rally. The police continued to jostle and roughly handle the women workers until the lady constables arrived at the scene. HRCP considers this treatment of women supporters a shameful act by the police officers and demands that an inquiry be made to look into this. HRCP stresses upon immediate action.
