Sahiwal Shooting: Relatives Along With Dead Bodies Lodge Sit-In At GT Road

LAHORE: Relatives of the persons, who were shot dead in Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) operation in Sahiwal a day ago, lodged sit-in at GT Road Lahore on Sunday as they were demanding to file First Investigation Report (FIR) against the shooting.

Relatives of the slain persons along with dead bodies continued their protest since seven hours at GT Road. The protestors have blocked both tracks of Ferozpur Road for traffic while local administration has also closed Metro Bus Service to void any untoward situation.

Protestors raised slogans against Prime Minister Imran Khan and Punjab Police during the protest while they were demanding other top officials to provide justice.

Earlier on Saturday, four persons were shot dead including two women during an alleged action by CTD of Punjab Police that went controversial when a wounded child gave statement before the media, saying they were moving to Burewala for attending a wedding ceremony.

However, CTD in its report submitted to Inspector General (IG) Punjab Police insisted that the law enforcers’ team attempted to stop ‘terrorists travelling through motorcycle and car’ at around 12:00 noon but they opened fire on the personnel avoiding the call to surrender before security officials.

However, the development reports spread like wildfire that draw heavy cricitism by nationals across the country against the police action.
