LHC orders release of Model Town incident inquiry report

LHC orders release of Model Town incident inquiry report”

Sources said that the Punjab government will file an intra-court appeal after receiving the written copy of LHC's verdict.

Earlier, Lahore High Court has ordered to public the Model Town incident report prepared by Justice Baqir Naqvi.

20 victim families through Barrister Ali Zafar had moved the court praying that Punjab govt be ordered to release Model Town inquiry report.

However, the Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif summoned an important meeting, and chose to challenge the LHC's verdict to make judicial inquiry report public.

It merits to mention here that as many as 14 workers of PAT had been killed on July 17, 2014 in police action against the party during an anti-encroachment operation outside the residence of party chief Dr Tahir ul Qadri.

Following the court orders, PAT has demanded resignation of Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif, saying that he is responsible for the carnage. "The murderer behind the Model Town incident is still at large", he said in an apparent reference to the Sharif brothers during a press conference a few days ago.

The Punjab Government is not willing to make the report public inter alia in the ground that it is prerogative of the government to make or not make public the report.

"We waited nearly three years but not one culprit was caught", the PAT chief said, adding that while rallies and protests were held to gain justice after the incident, no remarks were made against the judiciary.

In the aftermath of the incident, a judicial tribunal headed by LHC's Justice Ali Baqar Najafi had been constituted for finding out facts and fixing responsibility on the perpetrators.
