Police on Monday arrested 36 suspects who stormed into houses situated in Allah Bux Goth and beat up the occupants with rods, sticks and sledgehammers.
Around 50 attackers attempted to forcefully take possession of the houses that they claimed were their property, said SITE Super Highway police SHO Sohail Khan.
The assailants thrashed residents and also broke down walls of houses, he said. However, as the police reached the site after being called in by the residents through helpline, 36 attackers were rounded up, while the others managed to make a getaway, the SHO said.
The arrested suspects insisted that they were the real owners of the houses, he said. But the people living in the homes also showed to the police the possession documents, he added.
SHO Khan said an FIR had been registered against the arrested suspects, while a separate FIR was also lodged against one of the suspects, Tariq Hameed, who was carrying a 9 mm pistol with six rounds.
