LAHORE - Former Governor Sardar Latif Khosa has supported the calls that Mian Shahbaz Sharif should step down as the Punjab Chief Minister for the sake of a fair investigation of the Tuesday tragedy in which eight PAT workers were killed. Khosa, who is also a former Attorney General of Pakistan, said while speaking in a TV programme that the law wanted that no accused should influence the proceedings.  He cited media reports that efforts had been made to change the post mortem reports and there was every possibility that even crime scene would be changed. 

In such a situation, he said, it would be better if the Chief Minister stepped down. Replying to a question, the PPP leader said although only a few people had been sentenced for attacking the Supreme Court building in 1998, everybody knew the real faces behind the attempt.
