LAHORE - Family members of late Col Ikram Khan, who called on Punjab Governor Salmaan Taseer here on Tuesday, have alleged that Punjab government was pressuring them to withdraw the case though different means. The retired army officer died in a road accident a few months back when the then Punjab Chief Secretary, Javed Mahmoods car hit late Ikram, who later succumbed to his injuries in a hospital. The family members who met Governor Taseer included late Ikrams widow, daughter and two sons, Khurrum Ikram and Azam Ikram. Demanding strict action against the ex-chief secretary, they deplored that killer of their father had been set free, while Punjab government was pressurising them to withdraw the case using different tactics to harass them. They said they had no hope of getting justice from Punjab government. The family asked the Governor to use his influence to initiate a criminal case against the officer who jumped the signal violating traffic rules, hit their father and fled away from the scene leaving their father in critical condition on the road. They alleged that Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif were openly supporting the officer responsible for the death of their father. They also feared that the said officer may be given some important responsibility in Punjab in near future. If Punjab government does not take action against the ex-chief secretary, they will lodge protest at every available forum, they warned. According to an official handout, the family thanked the Governor for taking action against the responsible top officer who had to leave the post for his involvement in the case. The Governor assured the bereaved family for his full support and said stern action would be taken against the law breaker without caring for his powers and influence. He said it was a great pity that Punjab government was not doing justice with the family of late Col whose son, also an army officer, embraced martyrdom in a helicopter crash and who himself served Pakistan army for several years. Taseer said he condemned this attitude on the part of provincial government.
