LHC orders release of kiln workers

The Lahore High Court on Saturday ordered release of 9 kiln workers including children.
Justice Ahmad Raza Gilani passed the orders while hearing a habeas corpus petition filed by Touqeer Bibi, a relative of the workers, for their production and release.
Earlier, a bailiff produced the kiln workers before the court after recovering them from custody of a Gujranawala brick kiln owner. The bailiff reported that the workers had been detained by the kiln owner.
At this, the court ordered to release all workers including children.
The petitioner through his petition alleged that the respondent owner was extracting forced labour from the workers. He prayed the court to issue orders for their production and release.—APP
