“The fight broke out with Restaurant Staff over curd serving while we werr having dinner. One of my friends Liaqat was beaten up badly by the Staff inside the Restaurant. In the presence of police, we were too beaten up and all of us brought to the police Station. At that time, Liaqat’s condition was not well and even had requested a police officer to shift him to the hospital, but nobody was in a mood to help him. Afterward, we only took him to the hospital where he was declared dead. If the police acted swiftly his life could be saved,” said one of the friends Hamed who was with him at the Meridian Restaurant during the quarrel.
