Police have registered FIRs against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders in different police stations of Lahore after skirmishes with the party workers during the long march protest, MinuteMirror reported on Thursday.

The PTI leaders of Lahore, Zubair Niazi, Hassan Niazi Jamshed Iqbal Cheema and Musarrat Jamshed Cheema have been booked in cases registered at Gulberg, Bhatti Gate, Shahdara and Islampura police stations. The cases have been registered for violence against police officials, kidnapping of policemen and snatching anti-riot gear from the police officials on duty.

Police also booked the PTI workers under clauses of serious crimes, including damaging public property and police vehicles. Meanwhile, while talking to MinuteMirror, police spokesperson said that a total of three policemen got martyred and one hundred received serious injuries in Punjab during the crackdown on PTI protesters on Wednesday.

As per reports, policeman Kamal Ahmed got martyred in Lahore due to straight fire by a PTI worker while Muddasir and Javed died because of the overturning over the police bus they were travelling in. It happened when they were going to their duty in Attock. The spokesman further said, “The supporters of PTI damaged 11 police vehicles and vandalized public property. They also snatched two SMG guns from police officials.”

An anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Thursday handed over a man and his son, involved in the killing of a police constable, to police on seven-day physical remand. Earlier, the police produced Sajid Hussain and his son Akrama before the court. The investigation officer submitted that the accused gunned down a police constable, Kamal Ahmad, during a raid at their house in Model Town. He pleaded with the court for a 14-day physical remand of the accused for investigation.

However, the court granted only seven-day remand and ordered they be brought before the court on the expiry of the remand term. The court also sought a report about the investigation on the next hearing. Punjab government spokesman Ataullah Tarar, while speaking about the next general elections and Imran Khan’s demand for a date for then, said that “it is not you who would decide when the elections will take place. We will decide it in consultation with the allies”.

Tarar said that cases would be registered against those involved in vandalism and arson at different places and more arrests would be made. Similarly, cases would also be registered against those who attacked police officials from Gilgit-Baltistan.
