ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that the horrific vigilante attack on factory in Sialkot and the burning alive of Sri Lankan manager is a day of shame for Pakistan.

In a tweet on Friday, the prime minister said: "I am overseeing the investigations and let there be no mistake all those responsible will be punished with full severity of the law. Arrests are in progress."

Meanwhile, President Dr Arif Alvi said that he appreciates the prompt action taken by the prime minister and the government.

"The Sialkot incident is definitely very sad and shameful, and not religious in any way whatsoever. Islam is a religion that established cannons of deliberative justice rather than mob lynchings," he added.

Meanwhile, Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa has said that the cold blooded murder of Sri Lankan citizen by a mob at Sialkot is extremely condemnable and shameful.

In a tweet on Friday, he said: "Such extrajudicial vigilantism cannot be condoned at any cost."

The COAS directs all-out support to civil administration to arrest perpetrators of this heinous crime and bring them to justice.

Earlier, a violent mob beat a manager to death in Rajko Industries for allegedly hurting religious sentiments. The violent people also ransacked the factory.

Meanwhile, Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has ordered investigations into the incident and sought a report from the IGP Punjab. He said that no one will be allowed to take the law into his hand.
