A video of the incident emerged

Three policeman are in trouble after slapping around a young boy in Lahore's Sabzazar neighbourhood. 

A young boy was flying a kite on his roof when the policemen saw them. They called him down and once he set foot in the lane, two of them took turns slapping him. Afterwards, the third cop grabbed him by his hair and shook him. They then began walking, dragging the boy along by his hair.

After a video of the incident emerged, the operations IG took notice and summoned a report from the DSP.

Even though kite flying isn't allowed, the police have no right to resort to violence, said a resident of the area. A lawyer, Muhammad Ilyas, said the police should not resort to violence since their job is to present suspects before the court.

    Police should be treated like this also. Police ko b aysy e saza milni chaheay. Agar yahan bach gay tu akhrat mein kasy bacho gy. Pakistan mein koi action nahi layta zulam k khilaf jo log zulam hoty dekh rahy thy un ka kia anjam ho ga. Police ko b phansi honi chaheay. Jo k nhi ho g. Koi saath nhi dyta muzlum ka. Bohat bura qam kia hai. Jan k badly jan hoti hai. QTal k badly qatal woh b bachy ka. Behis log.

    Basant should be allowed. So that these kinds of incidents dont happen. Media can say whatever they have to say, people will keep on flying kites.
