ISLAMABAD: Dr Shahbaz Gill, spokesperson of Punjab Chief Minister, said the Counter Terrorism Department officials involved in the alleged extra-judicial killing of a family, had been taken into custody on the orders of Chief Minister Usman Buzdar.

Talking to a private news channel, he said the chief minister, who spent a busy day in Mianwali, was on his way to Sahiwal.

He said the CTD officials had claimed that four persons, including two women, who were said to be affiliated with Daish, were killed in the shootout near Sahiwal. However, moments after the alleged encounter, the family and eyewitnesses disputed the claim. Strict action would be taken against the officials if they were found guilty in the matter, he added.
