Concerns raised over non-preserving crime scene, delay in FIR, medico-legal and PTI protestors

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has written a letter to Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial requesting him to form a judicial commission to find out the facts of the firing incident on PTI Chairman Imran Khan.

The letter further stated says to find facts regarding the presence of more than one shooter, retaliatory firing, the overall number of victims, and the nature of their injuries. It also said to find if law enforcement and administrative authorities adopted the prevailing investigative procedures.

The prime minister further wrote in the letter that the country was suffering from a security situation and law and order crisis due to the tragic incident of firing in Imran Khan’s procession in Wazirabad. The letter stated that PTI leaders were making poisonous speeches and violent riots were causing chaos in the state.

The letter further stated that people were injured on the container but it was also not detained for forensics. It stated that Imran Khan’s medico-legal report was also not received and he was taken to a private hospital.

The Prime Minister wrote that the armed forces were being accused of conspiring with the federal government. The Prime Minister wrote that the current situation is a serious threat to the public order and state security of Pakistan.
