LAHORE: Pakistan Awami Tehreek Chief, Dr Tahirul Qadri on Wednesday announced to challenge Lahore High Court’s verdict regarding Model Town in the Apex Court.
Qadri while reacting to the decision of LHC, said that justice needs to be served in Model Town Tragedy. He said those who planted Model town carnage, where not summoned in the court, then how justice can be delivered?
He said that the whole world saw the brutality of the police in model town on June 17, 2014.
Earlier today, Lahore High Court (LHC) turned down the plea seeking summoning of ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif, former Chief Minister of Punjab (CM) Shehbaz Sharif and others in a case pertaining to Model Town carnage.
While announcing the reserved verdict, the court threw out ex-Inspector General of Punjab (IG) Mushtaq Sukhera’s exemption plea and directed him to appear for the hearings.
On June 17, 2014, Punjab police went to remove the barriers placed outside Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Chief Dr Tahirul Qadri’s residence and Minhajul Quran International (MQI) Secretariat in Model Town.
The workers of MQI resisted the move which led to a deadly clash leaving 14 workers dead and dozens injured.
