‘SSP Jawad Qamar ordered firing without deliberation in Sahiwal’
SAHIWAL (92 News) – SSP Jawad Qamar ordered firing on innocent people without any deliberation in Sahiwal, sources revealed to 92 News.
They said that the Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) did not want to nab Zeeshan. “Jawad Qamar reached the site after sometime of the incident. He got the luggage out of the vehicle. Bodies were shifted to Police Lines instead of hospital,” they revealed.
The police officer, the sources said, the SSP had ordered firing on the Zeeshan and Khalil. Moreover, the police shifted the bodies to hospital after six hours.
The JIT has recorded the statements of 13 witnesses and seven CTD officials.
Sources said that the vehicle of Zeeshan, who was killed in the Sahiwal tragedy, had been shifted to the forensic laboratory. The forensic agency experts will determine the direction and distance of the bullets fired on the vehicle.
On Wednesday, the Punjab government had presented the report of the Sahiwal tragedy to Prime Minister Imran Khan and held the CTD officials responsible for the killing of the innocent family.
The department’s chief and three officers have been asked to report to the federal government while two others have been suspended. The CTD killed four people, including parents Khalil and Nabeela, their teenage daughter, and their family friend, Zeeshan, who was driving the car.
The incident sent shock waves across the country as one of the three surviving children, who were witness to the episode, denied the official version in a video that went viral on social media. The report says a case will be tried against the relevant CTD officials in an anti-terrorism court (ATC).
Investigations in regard to Zeeshan are underway. Intelligence agencies earlier claimed ‘strong evidence’ indicating that Zeeshan Javed, the car driver killed along with the innocent family, had links with a terrorist group.
Prime Minister Imran Khan has sought recommendations for reforms in the Punjab police to curb such incidents in the future.
