A day earlier, the opposition in the Punjab Assembly staged a strong protest against the Punjab government for not presenting a joint investigation team (JIT) report on the Sahiwal
incident in the house for discussion.
The members of the opposition tore copies of today’s agenda of the assembly and gathered in front of the speaker’s dais in protest against the government’s declining their request to suspend the assembly proceedings to hold discussion on the Sahiwal JIT report.
The law minister dismissing the demand of judicial commission in Sahiwal tragedy on Monday urged the opposition in the Punjab Assembly to wait for the JIT report.
Earlier on Tuesday, the minister termed the Sahiwal encounter ‘100 percent right’ and said the initial investigation report by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) had held the Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) officials responsible for the loss of innocent lives in Sahiwal
The provincial law minister said that in light of the JIT report, Additional IGP of the CTD and the DIG Sahiwal were immediately being removed from their posts, while DIG and the SSP of CTD had been suspended.
He said five officers of the CTD would be produced before an anti-terrorism court and have been charged under Section 302 of Pakistan Penal Code (PPC).
