SAHIWAL-An FIR against 16 police officers has been lodged under section 302 and Section 7 of the Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA) at the Yousafwala police station on Sunday after a deadlock of 17 hours between protestors and administrative authorities on the Sahiwal incident. Reportedly, Khaleel's family members, relatives and their neighbours took to streets in Lahore with dead bodies to stage protest against the police and the CTD.

Residents of the area also joined the protest which compelled teh Sahiwal DPO to lodge the FIR after negotiations with the demonstrators failed repeatedly. The FIR has been lodged on behalf of Khaleel's brother Jaleel while a large number of protesters stayed outside the police station and chanted full throat slogans against police. Traffic remained jammed on Ferozpur Road and other adjoining areas for more than 17 hours, causing severe inconvenience for commuters.

Moreover, a JIT has been formed which will be headed by DIG Zulfiqar Hameed after PM Imran Khan, CM Usman Buzdar and Punjab Inspector General Police Amjad Javed Saleemi took note of the incident.

The DIG has sought an inquiry report of the incident from Sahiwal regional police officer (RPO) and CTD Punjab.

Representatives of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), Military Intelligence (MI) and Intelligence Bureau (IB) are also included in the JIT.
