PM Khan orders to remove officials involved in Model Town tragedy
LAHORE - Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday ordered to remove officials involved in the Model Town incident from their posts.

PM Imran Khan telephoned Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar and directed him to remove the officials involved in Model Town tragedy from their posts.

It is pertinent here to mention that during the telephonic conversation earlier today, PM Imran Khan had assured Dr Tahir ul Qadri that the victims of the Model Town massacre would get justice.

He reiterated his resolve that those responsible for the ruthless murder of innocent workers of the PAT in Model Town, Lahore would get justice.

The prime minister said that the PTI government was committed to ensure the provision of justice for all and said there would be no compromise on it.

Imran Khan went on to say that the Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar needs to ensure that action as per law was taken against all those responsible for the killings and said they need to be removed of their posts so that impartial legal action may proceed.

On the occasion, the PAT chief discussed the latest developments related to the Model Town massacre following the verdict of the LHC that rejected the request of the PAT to summon 12 parliamentarians including deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif and former Punjab chief minister Shahbaz Sharif in the case.

Dr Qadri was appreciative of the assurance of prime minister for justice in the case and said he has rekindled hope amongst the families of the victims. He said the families of those who lost their loved ones would be grateful to the prime minister if justice is done.
