TAXILA: Police have arrested four people for torching a watchman’s cabin located outside a worship place of Ahmadis in Wah Cantt, it emerged on Saturday.

According to police, those arrested were teenagers who were returning home after playing in a cricket ground last week when they spotted a watchman’s cabin outside the worship place of the Ahmadi community, near sector 14 in the jurisdiction of Wah Cantonment police station. The youths set fire to the metal-wooden cabin and escaped from the scene.
