LAHORE - Punjab Minister for Revenue Haji Muhammad Ishaq, who is facing inquiry for his alleged involvement in an aerial firing case, is most likely to be exonerated of the charges, as the inquiry committee probing the incident has not been able so far to find any substantial proof against him. As per sources, the committee comprising Additional IG, Special Branch, Saqlain Naqvi and Member, Board of Revenue (Judicial), Tariq Chak is now focusing its investigation on only two allegations against the Minister out of total nine. It would complete its findings by Saturday (today) after listening to the point of view of the minister, said a source privy to the investigations. The supporters of PPP Minister had a scuffle with police on the occasion of inauguration of a road in Gojra (TT Singh) when they allegedly resorted to aerial firing and police arrested some of their companions. Consequently, the Gojra police had registered cases against the minister under nine sections of the Pakistan Penal Code on charges of torturing govt functionaries, interfering in official business, attacking police station, inciting people against the state and forcibly trying to secure release of arrested men. According to sources, the said committee, after thorough investigation into the incident, has come to the conclusion that seven out of nine charges against the Minister are baseless. It is now focusing on only two charges: whether or not the Minister asked his supporters to resort to aerial firing, and if he actually manhandled the SHO, they added. The sources further told this scribe that committee had not yet found any circumstantial evidence of Ministers involvement even in the above said two allegations after interviewing several people. 'In the absence of any video recording of the incident, it is difficult to prove or otherwise if the Minister himself manhandled the SHO, and that if he had ordered his supporters to resort to aerial firing, commented a senior police officer seeking anonymity. He believed that the Minister would be exonerated of the charges in the absence of any solid proofs of his involvement. It is to be noted that three PPP Ministers including Senior Punjab Minister Raja Riaz, Finance Minister, Tanvir Ashraf Kaira and Haji Ishaq himself had met Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif a few days back, and demanded a fair inquiry into the incident. They had also requested for transfer of the concerned SHO, who was later asked to report to police line to ensure fairness in the investigations.
