Shahid Khaqan Abbasi demands to ‘public’ Karachi incident report


Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz Senior Leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has demanded to make report of the Karachi incident ‘public’.

While addressing media on Wednesday, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that he has been accused of misuse of authority, not committing corruption. The PML-N leader said that he has requested to the court to televise the case proceedings live and he will personally pay all the expenses.

He said that the problems of the people should be discussed in front of the people and the cases should be recorded on camera.  In his earlier address to media, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that the accountability watchdog NAB should be dissolved. He also accused the PTI government of getting involved in political point-scoring.

Let it be known that the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) on Tuesday said that the court of inquiry constituted on the orders of Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa has been completed.

According to ISPR, “The court of inquiry has established that on the night of Oct 18/Oct 19, officers from Pakistan Rangers (Sindh) and ISI sector Headquarters Karachi were considerably seized with the fall out of the desecration of Mazar-e-Quaid.”

ISPR statement said, “They were under increasing public pressure to ensure prompt action as per the law. Assessing the response of police authorities against this developing yet volatile situation to be slow and wanting, in a charged environment, the concerned officers decided to act, rather overzealously.”

“They were indeed experienced enough to have acted more prudently and could have avoided creating an unwarranted situation that led to a misunderstanding between the two-state institutions.

“Based on the recommendations of the court of inquiry, it has been decided to remove the concerned officers from their current assignments for further departmental proceedings and disposal at GHQ,” the statement added.
