Model town case in SC: New developments made

ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Chief Tahir-ul-Qadri on Saturday has taken up the infamous model town case to the Supreme Court of Pakistan.

He has requested the Supreme Court of Pakistan (SCP) to constitute impartial Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to probe Model Town carnage.

During the hearing, Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar issued notices to Punjab government, police and prosecution party. He also directed the Attorney General to submit details regarding the case in 15 days.

Earlier, Lahore High Court (LHC) had turned down plea seeking summons of ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif, former Chief Minister of Punjab (CM) Shehbaz Sharif and ten other ministers in a case pertaining to Model Town carnage.

PAT, in its appeal against the ruling of the trial court, had requested LHC to call former ministers Khawaja Saad Rafique, Rana Sanaullah, Khawaja Asif and others in the case.
