Lahore: 

A caretaker of religious place in Lahore unleashed his pet lion on an electrician for demanding wages, recently.

According to the Pakistani media report, a case of attempt to murder has been registered against the caretaker. Though the incident took place on September 9 in the capital of Punjab province, the complaint was lodged just two days ago.

According to the police, electrician Mohammad Rafique didn't file any complaint against Ali Raza, caretaker of congregation hall Sada-e-Imam Hussain, as he had been promised proper treatment of injuries received in the lion attack.

But when Ali Raza refused to get his wounds treated and pay the compensation he had promised, Rafique lodged the complaint, the police said.

Ali Raza had hired  Mohammad Rafique for some work at the congregation hall. When Mohammad Rafique demanded the wages on the completion of the job, Ali Raza told him to come later.

"The caretaker kept delaying the payment. But when Mohammad Rafique persisted, Ali Raza got annoyed and unleashed his pet lion on him. The lion wounded his face and arm," the police said.

Mohammad Rafique's cry for help alerted some passers-by and they rescued him from the lion, the police said. A case under section 324 of the Pakistan Penal Code has been lodged against Ali Raza.
