A policeman hacked a man to death for allegedly making derogatory remarks about the companions of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), police said, just two days after a Christian couple was lynched over blasphemy.

The man, Tufail Haider, 55, was taken into custody late on Wednesday in Gujrat after a group of people allegedly overheard him making the remarks, beat him up and handed over to police.

“Officer Faraz Naveed brought him to the police station and sent him to lock-up. Haider did not stop using nasty words about sahaba (the companions) despite warnings from various officials,” said police officer Khurram Shehzad.
