Police fired teargas shells and resorted to baton-charge to break up a protest staged by families of missing persons in Islamabad on Monday.
The protest demonstration was held at D-Chowk. However, the police swung into action and beat up the demonstrators when they tried to march toward the ultra high security Red Zone.
Amina Janjua, chairperson of Defence of Human Rights Pakistan, led the demonstration and called for the release of the missing persons.Female constables dragged and thrashed Janjua on the street before shifting her to a police station. She was also detained by the police along with other protesters.
