- Calls him personal drum-beater of Sharif family
- Opp leader accuses Rana Sana of being behind Punjab government’s conspiracy to defame KP government
LAHORE: Punjab Assembly Opposition leader and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Mehmoodur Rashid on Thursday criticised Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah for alleged point-scoring in Asma murder case.
He called Rana Sanaullah the personal drum-beater of the Sharif family. He asked why Rana Sana did not feel ashamed when 7-year-old Zainab was raped and murdered in Kasur.
Talking to reporters in the Punjab Assembly Secretariat, he said, “Hundreds of children have been kidnapped and later raped in Punjab but the minister did not take action and was not ashamed of the heinous crimes which took place in the province. He should have taken action. The whole nation saw the mistreatment that Zainab’s father was subject to by the Punjab government higher-ups. Now, Rana Sana is using Asma’s name for political gains.”
Asma, a third-year medical student in Abbottabad, was killed on January 27 in her hometown of Kohat where she had gone for vacations. Her killer Mujahid Afridi opened fire on her for rejecting his marriage proposal.
Criticising Rana for staying silent on the Model Town incident, he said, “Why was he not ashamed when 14 innocent people were killed and 100 injured in Model Town?”
He also asked the Sharif brothers to tame Rana Sanaullah and ask him to think before speaking. He said that the Punjab government has launched a well-planned conspiracy against the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government and is propagating distorted information about it. He alleged that Rana Sanaullah is an expert in propaganda and is behind the conspiracy to defame KP government.
“The public cannot be misled through the propagation of wrong figures,” he said.
Answering a question regarding Abid Boxer, he said that the former inspector of Punjab Police killed innocent people on the order of the big-wigs of Punjab government. He claimed that Abid Boxer will make startling revelations about the Punjab government upon interrogation.
“Abid has already made many revelations and will make further revelations in the days to come. He will expose many ‘well-respected’ people in Punjab,” he said.
Former encounter specialist Abid boxer has been on the run for 11 years for his involvement in extrajudicial killings. He is notorious for his connections with the underworld and land-grabbing mafia.
Abid was arrested from the Dubai airport by Interpol and will be interrogated by the Punjab Police for his criminal activities.
