Babu Shahbaz was accused of desecrating the pages of the Qur’an and taken into custody on the same day. Although illiterate, he was accused of writing his name across 100 pages of the Qur’an, strewing them across the road and partially destroying 150 other pages. The accusers said Babu had ‘unknown accomplices’ helping him. There have been no eyewitnesses identifying anyone involved in the case.
