Karachi: An influential landlord made four villagers, including a woman, to walk on boiled oil following allegations of theft in Chak 153-P, around 34 kms from Rahim Yar Khan.

As per reports, some jewellery and money were stolen from the house of landlord Mohsin a few days back.

The landlord suspected that four villagers Sadia (14), Kashif (24), Shehzad (21) and Asim (19) were involved in the theft, reports Dawn.

The landlord summoned the four at his residence on the advice of fake faith healer Shaukat and forced them to prove their innocence by walking on boiled oil.

He told the scared villagers that those whose feet were found burnt would have to return the stolen jewellery and cash.

The elders of the villagers informed the police, who raided Mohsin’s house. The landlord managed to escape along with the faith healer and accomplices.

The police have registered a case against Mohsin, Shaukat and four others under Sections 324, 148 and 149.
