The vehicle used in the Sahiwal incident was owned by a terrorist named Adeel Hafeez who was killed in Faisalabad during the operation of security forces, according to reports.
He had bought the car for Rs680,000 through an online application on May 9, 2018, from a man named Saqib Muhammad. However, the vehicle was under the use of Zeeshan who was killed in counter-terrorism department’s (CTD) encounter in Sahiwal. He has been suspected of having links with Islamic State (IS). A selfie of Zeeshan was recovered from his mobile phone with Usman, another terrorist killed in Faisalabad.
Meanwhile, Zeeshan’s family held a protest demanding the government to take back accusation against the victim. “The government should either take the accusation back or provide evidence that Zeeshan was a terrorist,” they said.
The protesters had blocked Main Ferozpur Road at Chungi Amar Sidhu from both the sides. Traffic jam caused a long queue of vehicles on the road.
