Police have taken a legal team on board to seek judgment on the written complaint of Punjab Assembly Speaker Chaudhry Pervez Elahi.
The speaker of Punjab Assembly has sought to register a case against Chief Minister-elect Hamza Shehbaz and several government officers.
According to media reports, the police came into operation after Chaudhry Pervez Elahi referred to the sessions court on Monday, to lodge a case against the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leadership. The court called on the Qila Gujjar Singh police to submit a reply.
In his complaint, Elahi also named Punjab Chief Secretary Kamran Afzal, Inspector General of Police Punjab Rao Sardar Ali Khan, Lahore Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Shahzada Sultan, Additional Chief Secretary Syed Ali Murtaza, Lahore Division Commissioner Captain (R) Usman, Deputy Commissioner Umar Sher Chattha and several PML-N lawmakers.
He purported that Hamza Shehbaz had directed these officers to act unlawfully to ‘torture’ him as the election of chief minister in Punjab Assembly went underway on Saturday. He added that Hamza had also ordered his lawmakers to kill him.
He requested that the court order police to register a case against the culprits behind the attack on the speaker and other Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf lawmakers.
Lahore police have recommended that Chaudhry Pervez Elahi undergo a medical examination at a government hospital, which is a prerequisite to lodge a complaint with police in the case of criminal assault.
However, a local newspaper reported that Elahi has refused to do so.
