LAHORE - The businessmen have demanded the authorities concerned to launch an independent and fair investigation in the killing of the son of Anjuman-e-Tajiran Shah Alam Board president Sheikh Fazal Elahi as the accused is enjoying VIP protocol in Police custody.

The father of Hamza Elahi and Anjuman-e-Tajiran Shah Alam Board president Sheikh Fazal Elahi, accompanied by APAT general secretary Naeem Mir, alleged that his son killer, who is also the son of former Lahore commissioner Khusro Pervaiz, is availing VIP facilities, which is not fair.

 He said that home secretary is giving undue favour to an accused of murder.

On the occasion APAT general secretary Naeem Mir said that killer belongs to a strong influential party, who has changed investigation team, which is favouring accused. He warned the authorities that if investigation is changed, the business community will besiege office of DPO. He also appealed the Punjab CM to take notice of the issue.

The press conference was also attended by APAT Lahore president Shahid Bilal, Shabbir Sial and other trade leaders.
