ISLAMABAD: PML-N spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb on Friday demanded the “immediate arrest” of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s nephew Hassaan Niazi for his “involvement in the attack” by lawyers on Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC).
“They said that the police raided the residence of Imran Khan’s nephew, but he was not found. There is no case registered against Hassaan Niazi despite his clear involvement in the incident. He must be arrested immediately. The incident must be thoroughly probed and the hospital unsealed,” she made these views while talking to media outside the parliament.
She alleged, “People from all over the country would go to that hospital and now because of this incompetent, unqualified government, it lies sealed.”
The PML-N leader lashed out at the PTI-led government for seeming “helpless” in the aftermath of the attack.
“We witnessed a complete collapse of the Punjab government. Those who used to challenge the writ of the state in 2014, who smashed open the heads of police officers at D-Chowk, we ask them: Where was the Punjab government that day? They were told that the lawyers were walking to the hospital that day.”
