Punjab CM Mian Shahbaz Sharif said he has asked Law Minister Rana Sanaullah to step down over Lahore disaster. Addressing a media conference here on yesterday, Chief Minister Sharif said he was aggrieved over loss of human lives during a police raid at Minhaj-ul-Quran Secretariat in Model Town Lahore.
“The judicial commission constituted to probe the killings will reveal facts about the gory incident. We will have no issue if Supreme Court of Pakistan (SCP) takes suo motto notice and sets up an inquiry commission, he said. Shahbaz Sharif said that he had ordered the arrest of those who opened fire on protestors in Model Town Lahore.
The CM said that he wanted to send a team of his ministers to Minhaj-ul-Quran Secretariat for condolence, but they weren’t allowed. Around 12 persons lost their lives in firing by police on supporters of Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) in Lahore.
