Lahore: A squad of police officers in Pakistan became enraged after a takeout restaurant refused to provide them free burgers, arresting all 19 employees at the location.

Workers of the fashionable brand Johnny & Jugnu in the eastern city of Lahore were gathered up and detained for seven hours on Saturday, leaving unattended kitchens and hungry diners behind.

"This isn't the first time something like this has occurred with our culinary workers at our restaurant, but we want to make sure it's the last," the fast-food business stated in a social media post.

The feud began after restaurant personnel declined a "request from a very high profile special guest."

According to restaurant employees, the majority of those detained were young individuals, including numerous university students.

Following public outrage, nine police officers were suspended yesterday, according to senior provincial police official Inam Ghani on Twitter.

"No one has the right to take the law into his own hands," Ghani remarked.

Police personnel in Pakistan is notorious for corruption and requesting payments from local businesses.

Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan has called for the reform of the Punjab police department, claiming that politicians have recruited "cronies" to run police stations.
