Model Town Carnage: PAT Files New Plea in LHC

LAHORE: Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) secretary general Khurram Nawaz Gandapur on Monday filed a new petition in Lahore High Court (LHC) against the bench formed in new JIT to probe Model Town.

The petitioner in its plea has stated that a two-member bench hearing new model town JIT was changed to three-member which is a violation of the court. The petitioner has requested the court to form a new bench by dismissing a full bench.

Expressing his reservations over Model Town case, Khurrum Nawaz said that Bisma Amjad wanted to discuss the case with LHC chief justice, but chief justice didn’t bother to meet Bisma.

On June 17, 2014, 14 people were killed and 100 others injured after police launched an assault on PAT supporters gathered outside the residence of Tahirul Qadri in Model Town, Lahore.
