LAHORE, Jan 4 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 04th Jan, 2017 ) : The Lahore High Court on Wednesday ordered release of four women kiln workers and their five children, who were recovered from a kiln in Ali Pur Chattha.

Earlier, a bailiff produced the women and children before the court after recovering them from custody of brick kiln owner, Nauman.
