An influential landlord and his son allegedly set two children ablaze in Sahiwal on Sunday to take revenge on their father. 

According to details, five-year-old Abdur Rehman and his younger sister Nimra received severe burn injuries when landlord Javed and his son allegedly threw petrol on them and set them on fire over a monetary dispute with their father. The accused fled after the incident. 

According to the father of the injured children, Javed and his son set his children on fire because they had enmity with him. He said that police were not registering a case against the influential accused. The injured children were taken to the hospital by people of the locality.
