SIALKOT, December 19 (Online): Clash of claims goes on in the naked parade drama of the Sadra Bara village where victim's sticks to her allegations which the witnesses deny.

As the story goes, police have arrested Mohammad Alam, his two sons, and another person for beating and tearing off a local councillor Naseem Akhtar's clothes, dragging her through the village.

Alam admits to taking offence to Akhtar's challenge of contributing money for a graveyard, but denies she was humiliated.

Akhtar says she was beaten for two hours and dragged through the streets of the village as townsfolk looked on from streets and nearby rooftops. She said the men were armed with sticks and nobody dared rescue her.

After reading this bizzare story , whom would like to believe ? At one side we have a 65 year old man, Mohammad Alam, who's ready to perform haj in next two months, and on the other side we have this women councillor who's invited media to come and see her ripped clothes, which she's blamed upon Mohammad Alam, who also happens to be her political rival ?
