Judge orders to register a case against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif

PM Nawaz Sharif controversial speech

ISLAMABAD- An additional sessions judge has ordered the Secretariat police to register a case against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and 10 others while disposing of a petition filed by Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) over the alleged killing of three political activists on August 30.

The party had approached the Secretariat police station to register a First Information Report (FIR) on the matter against Nawaz Sharif, Shahbaz Sharif, Chaudhry Nisar, Khawaja Asif, Saad Rafique, IG Islamabad, Deputy Commissioner Islamabad, IG Railways and three others over the incidents of August 30 that led to the deaths of three people during the protests by PTI and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) in the federal capital.

PTI had filed the request days after the August 30 violence but following the police’s failure to register a case, the party had approached the sessions court under clause 22-A of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) for redress. Additional sessions judge Shahrukh Arjumand issued the order today, directing the police to register an FIR against the prime minister and 10 others.
