Opposition Should Avoid Politics on Sahiwal Incident

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that the opposition should not do politics over the Sahiwal incident as Prime Minister Imran Khan and Chief Minister Punjab Usman Buzdar have assured exemplary punishments to those involved in the heart wrenching incident.

Responding to the points of Opposition Leader Shahbaz Sharif on the Sahiwal incident, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that a transparent inquiry was conducted into the tragic Sahiwal incident through a joint investigation team.

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said prompt action has been taken against the concerned police officers by removing and suspending them from their positions.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said an FIR has also been registered against the officers involved in the encounter and their case will be taken up by an anti-terrorism court.
