Lahore/Pakistan, July 12: Child labour and its allied cruelties have become so common among the people as well as the lawmakers in Pakistan.

His body has recovered from Jahan’s premises late Tuesday night and his sister, Atiya, was found lying injured in the house.bThe 15 years old boy was employed 4 years back, at the age of 11. The 12-year-old girl was immediately shifted to a local hospital for treatment while the victim’s body was shifted to a morgue for post-mortem examination, sources added.
The family of the victim lodged a complaint at the Akbari Gate Police Station for registration of a FIR against the ruling party’s lawmaker, who could not be found at her residence.
