Police arrest fast food restaurant workers after being denied free food

The fast-food restaurant’s representatives gave details about the incident, explaining that it had been caused by staff’s refusal to give policemen free burgers.

After allegedly detaining 19 employees of a fast-food restaurant in Lahore for refusing to offer them free snack meals, some Pakistani police officers are facing suspension.

Staff at a Johnny & Jugnu fast food restaurant in Lahore, Pakistan, were picked up and arrested at around 8 p.m. on Saturday and detained in jail overnight, according to local media, for “having the temerity to refuse a group of police officers complimentary burgers last week.”

Employees were apparently not allowed to shut down the kitchen, leaving the fryers running and customers in queue for their food.

In an official statement, The fast-food restaurant’s representatives gave details about the incident, explaining that it had been caused by staff’s refusal to give policemen free burgers.

“This is not the first time something like this has happened… at our restaurant.

“Upon rejecting their request for free burgers, which has become a common practice for them, the police officers threatened our managers and left, only to return the next day to further harass and pressure our teams… with baseless arguments.

11th of June 2021, some police officers came to our… outlet and took our manager into custody, without giving any reason whatsoever. Then they emptied out our entire branch, taking all of our kitchen crew, including the rest of the managers,” Johnny & Jugnu officials wrote on Facebook.

The incident sparked controversy on social media and prompted provincial police official Inam Ghani to suspend the officers involved in the illegal arrests.
