CM Buzdar vows to provide ‘visible’ justice in Sahiwal case


LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has vowed to provide “visible justice” in the Sahiwal case in which three members of a family were allegedly killed during a shootout between the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) and suspected terrorists on Saturday.

While chaired a high-level meeting at the CM Office to review the law and order situation on Sunday, Buzdar said that the Punjab government has formed a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) in Sahiwal case for neutral investigation and its FIR has been registered.

He assured that all those found guilty will be held accountable and action will be taken against them in accordance with the law.

CM Buzdar vowed that culprits will be brought to book and “we will ensure the rule of law.”

“Justice would not only happen but everyone will witness it. Requirements of justice will be fulfilled in this incident,” he added.

The detailed aspects of the incident were discussed in the meeting and a report was also presented to the CM.

Provincial Law Minister Raja Basharat, chief secretary, additional chief secretary (interior), inspector general of police and other senior officials concerned attended the meeting.


Protesters seeking justice in the Sahiwal ‘encounter’ thrashed police officials who came for negotiations to defuse the demonstration.

When Kahna DSP Raza Shah and Inspector Rizwan reached to hold talks, the protesters refused to give up their demands which led to a clash between the two groups.

The policemen had to leave aside vehicles and run for their lives to escape from the agitated protesters.
