The former law minister of Punjab didn’t appear in front of JIT to record his statement in the Model Town case on Monday. Earlier, the JIT had sent notice to Rana Sanaullah to appear and record his statement under section 160 of the Criminal Procedure Court.
Talking to the media, the former law minister said that JIT has no legal standing and the Punjab government formed the JIT to take political revenge.
The notice was issued to Rana Sanaullah by the investigation officer and Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Iqbal Hussain Shah. Earlier, the Punjab home department formed a new JIT headed by AD Khawaja who is the IG of National Highways and Motorway Police.
On June 17, 2014, Punjab Police killed fourteen workers of Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) in order to remove the barriers in front of the residence of Dr. Tahirul Qadri.
The report of the first JIT was rejected by the court as there were no statements submitted by the families of the victims.
According to the report of Justice Baqir Najfi, police never confirmed who gave them orders to open straight fire on the workers of PAT. But, now, the former IG of Punjab Police Mushtaq Sukhera has confirmed that Rana Sanaullah gave me orders for direct fire on the public in Model Town.
