Inspector General (IG) Islamabad Dr. Akbar Nasir Khan has submitted his report regarding PTI’s long march in Islamabad and protesters breaching the red zone despite the Supreme Court’s orders.
The IG’s report stated that the administration had implemented the court’s orders in letter and spirit but the roads leading to the Red zone were sealed completely. According to the report, actions of police, Rangers and FC against the protestors were brought to a halt after the SC’s orders.
IG Federal Police has said in his report that PTI leadership instigated their workers to remove barriers and move towards D-Chowk. The report added that PTI’s armed protestors threw stones at the police, set trees on fire, and tried to run over policemen injuring at least 23.
Approximately 2000 protestors, led by Imran Ismail and Saifullah Niazi tried to enter the Red Zone, it said. The police used tear gas to disperse the protestors, the IG added.
The IG claimed that the PTI workers entered the Red Zone on orders from senior leaders including Fawad Chaudhry, Zartaj Gul and Saifullah Nazi.
PTI has already moved a petition in the Supreme Court of Pakistan to allow their right of peaceful protest.
