PESHAWAR-  Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervez Khattak has reportedly decided to register an FIR against the federal interior minister, commandant Frontier Constabulary (FC) and Punjab’s inspector general of police for torturing Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf workers during the party’s march on Islamabad ahead of Islamabad lock down plan.

This was confirmed by the spokesperson for the provincial government, Mushtaq Ahmed Ghani that the chief minister had decided to register an FIR against Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, Punjab IG Mushtaq Sukhera and Commandant FC Liaquat Ali Khan who were responsible for torturing the PTI workers.

Earlier on Oct 31, thousands of PTI workers, led by Chief Minister Pervez Khattak, remained engaged in skirmish with police after they were tear-gassed following their attempts to break through the barricades, first at the Hazro area on the border of Punjab and KP and later at the Burhan Interchange on the Peshawar-Islamabad Motorway.

Mr Ghani while talking to Dawn said that they had ordered gassing and torture of unarmed PTI workers and used rubber bullets against them. He said that there was no law and order situation in the wake of PTI march on Islamabad and these people, including Mr Nisar,ordered torture of their workers and KP chief minister.

He questioned that under what law the orders for torturing the peaceful PTI workers was given. He said that the FIR would likely be registered in the police station in Punjab in whose jurisdiction the torture had taken place. However, he said that they were consulting with their lawyers in this regard and the decision has not been finalised yet.

It must be interesting to know that both Pervez Khattak, Imran Khan and Ch. Nisar attended the saem Aitchison school and Ch. Nisar also attended the nuptial ceremony of Pervez Khattak, a picture of the event went viral a few days ago.
