LAHORE - PAT President Dr Raheeq Abbasi has said the Joint Investigative Team’s report on the Model Town incident was a pre-planned script.

“The Pakistan Awami Tehreek had already said that the report would give a clean chit to the actual murderers of PAT workers in the incident,” he said in a statement issued on Wednesday.

He said it was shameful to say that the firing was started from the PAT side though not a single shot was fired by the PAT workers who were not armed.

Abbasi said the people mentioned in the report as absconders were in the protection of the Punjab chief minister while one of them had been appointed in the World Trade Organisation as Pakistan’s representative.

“We have never accepted the factious JIT and do not accept its one-sided report. Our culprit is the Punjab chief minister, Rana Sana Ullah and the other officers who carried the orders of the CM.

PAT Secretary General Khurram Nawaz Gandapur said the JIT had acted as a personal servant of the Punjab CM. He said Abdur Razzaq Cheema woud have to face punishment in this world as well as in the next world for giving a false report.
