LHC moves ahead in the case of putting CM, Law Minister and former IGP on ECL
LAHORE - Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) through its counsel Ishtiaq Chaudhry filed the petition, requesting the court to put the names of Shahbaz Sharif, Rana Sanaullah and former IGP Mushtaq Sukhera on the ECL in the Model Town case.
After initial hearing, a bench of LHC issued notice to interior ministry to file response to the petition within two weeks.
Chaudhry submitted that the high court has ordered the Model Town incident inquiry report by Justice Mazahir Ali Baqir Najafi to be made public.This has raised optimism that the incident which occurred in 2014 causing the death of fourteen people and injuries to around one hundred will reach its logical conclusion and the justice will be served, he added.
The counsel argued that the three are responsible for the incident and are likely to flee the country if the trial in the case starts. Therefore, he pleaded with the court to bar from going abroad until the conclusion of trial in the case.
