Lahore resident asks police to ‘arrest’ dengue mosquitoes, submits application
LAHORE: A citizen, Rashid Karamat Butt, has submitted an application against dengue mosquitoes for killing people in the city at Batapur Police Station.
With his bizarre reason, Butt reached Batapur police station in Lahore on Tuesday to file a case against dengue mosquitoes. The police did accept his application, however, refused to enter a case.
In his application, Butt said that he was the resident of Dograye Kallan at Jallo Mor, where an “evil dengue mosquitoes gang” had attacked the citizens and killed many of them.
“A large number of dengue patients are facing difficulty in hospitals as beds are already occupied with other dengue patients. Police must inquire about the whereabouts of this gang of dengue mosquitoes and arrest them on war footings,” the application read.
According to Butt, at least 11 people from two areas of his union council were admitted to government hospitals alone, and it was difficult to keep a count of people admitted to private hospitals.
“I urge the police to register a case against the dengue gang immediately, and save the lives of innocent citizens of Lahore,” Butt said while speaking to Bol News.
Meanwhile, Batapur police officials explained to Bol News that they had acknowledged Butt’s application on humanitarian grounds only.
“People are already suffering from Covid-19, dengue and rising inflation, so this gesture might give them some sort of satisfaction that at least their police stands with them,” they said.
“Otherwise, it is funny and non-implementable to register an FIR/case against mosquitoes and arrest them as no sane men could think like this,” a police official at Batapur police station told Bol News.
