LHC full bench to decide about Model Town report: Rana Sana”

On Thursday, LHC's single bench headed by Justice Mazahir Ali Akbar Naqvi ordered the provincial authorities to release the report devised by Justice Ali Baqar Najafi on the Model Town killings.

Victims of Model Town incident are holding a protest outside Civil Secretariat in Lahore.

PAT wrote a letter to Punjab Home Secretary for Model Town Inquiry report.

Activists gathered outside the Civil Secretariat carrying placards and shouting slogans in favour of their demands.

Commuters faced severe difficulty at Mall Road because of the traffic jam due to PAT's protest.

"Contempt proceedings would be launched against officials if court's orders are not implemented as a report should be made public once it is compiled", stated renowned legal analyst Abid Hussain Manto.

The protesters are still present at the venue and have refused to disperse until they are handed over the report. "The matter of making the report public is among the issues being decided by the full bench", he added.

Speaking on TV on Thursday, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said the government would follow the court's orders, but only after the decision of the full court on Monday, September 25.

He added that the government is not refusing to release the report but a certain part, which is objectionable in Najfi's report should be remained classified in the larger interest of the country.

Analysts urged Punjab govt to make report public at earliest and warned that any delay would generate perception that govt is trying to cover multitude of sins. At least 14 people were killed and 100 others injured in the police action.
