LAHORE: Relatives of Zeeshan and Khalil, who were killed in controversial shootout by Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) in Sahiwal, departed for Islamabad on Tuesday morning.

The families of the deceased persons will meet members of Senate Standing Committee for Interior.

A government vehicle was sent to transport the affected families to the federal capital. The Senate committee will brief the affected families pertaining details of progress in investigation into Sahiwal incident.

The relatives including slain Zeeshan’s mother and his brother Ehtesham while Jalil, brother of slain Khalil, have left for the Capital. However, this time the relatives were provided notification from the Senate standing committee regarding the meeting.

While interacting with media persons, Jalil expresses dissatisfaction over investigation initiated by Joint Investigation Team (JIT). He said that police personnel will never hold transparent probe against their colleagues. He said that the government should have formed judicial commission instead of joint probe team in its first step. He demanded trial of the accused persons in military court citing sensitivity of the case.

Answering a question, Jalil said that lawyer’s claims for receiving life threats by the affected family and the counsel as ‘self-made’.
