Deputy Superintendent of Police Ahmedpur said, "The Chani Goth police station received a complaint that a person has burnt the pages of the Quran; the police arrested the person and brought him to the police station and put him in the lock up. Some religious leaders announced on the loud speakers that a man has committed blasphemy against Islam." As is frequently the case in Muslim-dominated Pakistan, mobs surrounded the police station baying for the life of the alleged blasphemer.
