Model Town JIT records statement of Nawaz Sharif


LAHORE: The Model Town incident’s joint investigation team (JIT) Wednesday recorded the statement of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif at the Kot Lakhpat jail.
The JIT, led by Motorway Police chief AD Khawaja, remained at the prison for approximately two hours.
The JIT had sought permission from the accountability court to record Nawaz’s statement and will ask the former prime minister several questions.
The JIT, formed by the Home Department of Punjab earlier this year to relaunch a fresh investigation into the tragedy, had summoned Shehbaz today to record his statement in the case.
At least 14 people were killed and 100 others injured in police action against PAT workers in Lahore on June 17, 2014. The then-Punjab government, at the behest of the Lahore High Court, made the report for the Model Town incident public on December 5, 2017.
