Man accused of desecrating Koran burned alive by Pak mob
An angry mob broke into a Pakistani police station and burned alive a man accused of desecrating the Koran, police said Saturday.
According to Maulvi Memon, the imam in the village of Seeta in Sindh province, the man was a traveler and had spent Thursday night at the mosque. The charred remains of the Koran were found the next morning. Memon said, "He was alone in the mosque during the night. There was no one else there to do this terrible thing."
Villagers assaulted the man then handed him over to police. A few hours later, a mob of around 200 people stormed the police station, dragged the man out and set him on fire.
Usman Ghani, the senior superintendent of police in Dadu district, said around 30 people had been arrested for the crime and seven policemen detained for negligence.
