New VIDEO exposes CTD claims about Sahiwal ‘encounter’
LAHORE – Footage recorded from a cell phone has exposed the Counter-Terrorism Department’s inconsistent claims on Sahiwal shootout, in which four people including two women were shot dead by the policemen on Saturday.
Then, as seen in the video, the CTD officials take the children out of the car and spray the vehicle with a volley of bullets with the remaining passengers inside. The video also shows the CTD officers leaving the shooting site immediately without preserving the ‘crime scene’.
