FAISALABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Rana Sanaullah staged a symbolic court in front of reporters in Faisalabad on Tuesday and presented several of the suspected men alleged to have killed Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) activist Haq Nawaz in violent protests yesterday.
Sanaullah brought his guard, Nadeem Mughal, in front of the reporters and held up a picture of the gunman, asking those present to draw a comparison between Mughal and the man seen firing on TV.
The PML-N leader said PTI Chairman Imran Khan’s party had implicated more than 300 men in the first information report (FIR) they had registered, which also include several top PML-N leaders.
He added that PTI’s FIR implicated Imtiaz s/o Siraj as the man who had fired on PTI workers. Sanaullah said the Punjab police had found the suspect and, with an air of drama, Imtiaz was also brought in front of reporters for a comparison with the shooter’s image.
The PML-N leader said that by implicating an innocent man, Imtiaz, PTI was trying to protect the actual murderer of Nawaz. He said the Punjab police would find the perpetrator, and for that several PTI workers will also be questioned, he said adding that the PTI has already been informed in this regard.
Clarifying his position again on PTI claims that Nawaz was shot by his family’s guard, Sanaullah said TV channels caught that man live and National Database Regulatory Authority (Nadra) would soon identify him.
He alleged that PTI workers took the body of Nawaz by force from the hospital and brought it to his home on the orders of Imran Khan and PTI’s leadership, adding that he would pursue a legal action against them.
The PML-N leader said Faisalabad was at peace by 11am on December 8, and that it was Imran Khan and his men who disrupted peace of the city.
Sanaullah alleged that part of Imran’s Plan ‘C’ was to get PTI activists killed on their way to different cities.
Sanaullah did however admit there was a possibility of a militant organisation being behind the Faisalabad violence, given numerous looming threats.
