According to Firdous Aashiq Awan, the special consultant to the Prime Minister on information and broadcasting, Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan has well-ordered the Punjab government to file a plea in contradiction of the anti-terrorism court’s result in the Sahiwal gunfire case.
“The prime minister has also well-ordered that inquiries should be approved on the weak proof existing in court,” Dr. Firdous Aashiq Awan said in a series of tweets on Friday.
An anti-terrorism court cleared on Thursday all the accused in the Sahiwal gunfire case. The court said that the accused were given the advantage of the hesitation.
The consultant said that the government was stanch on providing justice to the acquitted children. If their families don’t request against the result, the state will request, Firdous Ashiq added.
