LHC orders to make Model Town tragedy report public
LAHORE (92 News) – The Lahore High Court (LHC) has on Thursday ordered the authorities to public the inquiry report into the Model Town tragedy.
The Lahore High Court (LHC) had reserved its judgment over a petition seeking directives for Punjab government to make the inquiry report into the Model Town tragedy public.
A petition was filed for the release of a judicial inquiry report carried out by Justice Ali Baqar Najafi into the killings of Pakistan Awami Tehreek’s (PAT) workers in 2014.
Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Dr Tahirul Qadri had repeatedly demanded that the Justice Baqir Najfi Commission report on the Model Town tragedy be made public.
Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif was declared responsible for the incident by the report, he accused.
On June 17, 2013, at least 14 workers of PAT were killed, while scores of others were injured in deadly police crackdown outside Minhajul Quran’s secretariat in Model town.
