4 held for attack on woman

Lahore, Dec. 16 (Reuters): Pakistani police arrested a powerful landlord and three other men for beating a woman councillor and parading her naked through the streets of a border village in Punjab province, officials said today.

On December 7 at least 10 men stopped local councillor Naseem Akhtar Butt as she came out of her house in a small village near the border city of Sialkot, north of Lahore, and started beating her. They tore off her clothes and paraded her naked through the village streets as hundreds of people looked on.
