Meanwhile, Mohsin Naqvi held a meeting with the abducted and safely rescued children, Shayan and Subhan, and their parents, Dr Hasan Mahmood and Dr Zunazish, at his office. The CM congratulated the parents on the safe recovery of their children and praised the professionalism of DPO Rahim Yar Khan and the investigation team for their swift action in recovering the children within 24 hours. He further congratulated the police for their hard work which led to the successful tracing of the case and the safe rescue of the children.

The parents expressed their gratitude to the CM, IG police and the investigation team for their prompt action in rescuing their children. IG police Dr Usman Anwar and DPO Rahim Yar Khan Rizwan Umar Gondal were also present.

Separately, the chief minister expressed a deep sense of sorrow and grief over the death of nine Pakistanis in a traffic accident in Saudi Arabia and extended his heartfelt sympathies to the bereaved heirs. I am deeply saddened by the loss of lives due to the overturning of the Umrah pilgrims’ vehicle near Riyadh and the Punjab government stands in solidarity with the bereaved families in their hour of sorrow, said the CM.

Caretaker Chief Minister Punjab Mohsin Naqvi has instructed for the parking lot at Data Darbar Complex, which has remained closed for the past 13 years, to be made operational.

During a meeting held at his office to discuss matters pertaining to the shrine, the CM called for a comprehensive plan to be put in place for the expansion and redesigning of the complex, with a particular emphasis on improving facilities for visitors.

One of the decisions made during the meeting was to create a one-way street from Karbala Gamay Shah Mor to Data Darbar, to alleviate traffic congestion. Furthermore, plans were discussed to construct a safe passage for pedestrians along the footpath leading to the shrine.

It was also stated during the meeting that the parking lot will only accommodate small vehicles, with larger vehicles such as trucks not being allowed. To ensure the safety of parked vehicles, the services of a reliable security company will be hired, and a monitoring system will also be implemented. The CM directed that these plans be put into effect as soon as possible.

The meeting was attended by several officials, including the Auqaf Minister Azfar Ali Nasir, the chief secretary, IG police, ACS (Home), CCPO Lahore, commissioner and DC Lahore, secretary Auqaf and NESPAK officials.
