A young boy was arrested in Rang Shah, Sahiwal for trying to fly a ‘flying machine’.
The local police reported that they took the boy into ‘protective custody’ for attempting to operate a ‘flying device’ he had created.
Fayaz is still a matriculation student. The resident of 50/EB, Muhammad Nagar of Arifwala, was trying to fly his ‘flying device’. Hundreds of villagers had gathered to see the boy test his machine.
A budding inventor got the shock of his life when someone called the police, who arrested him on the spot. The local police cordoned off the fields and arrested Fayaz to stop him.
The Price of Curiosity
How did this boy create a ‘flying machine’?
Fayaz claims that he sold his four-kanal piece of land and invested the money into developing the machine. The school-boy stated that he had inherited the land.
Witnesses said the police took the device when they arrested the boy. Spectators reported that the police carried the machine in a tractor trolley and took it to the police station.
No first information report was registered against Fayaz but the boy is still in police custody.
In light of all the civil rights violation (that too of a minor), Rang Shah Station House Officer Nisar Bhatti tried to clear the air. He said that Fayaz had only been taken into ‘protective custody.’
He said that the ‘unreliable machine’ was impounded to ensure it did not cause any harm to villagers who had gathered to witness the experiment.’
He said they had called in ‘experts’ to check what the device was and how it would function.
