Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri on Thursday demanded the suspension of Punjab law minister and inspector general of police over the recent rape and murder of Zainab in Kasur.
“If you eliminate the crime and punish the criminals, then make Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Home Minister Rana Muhammad Afzal, Law Minister Rana Sanaullah, and the IGP Captain (retired) Arif Nawaz Khan accountable,” Qadri demanded at a press conference.
“The IG Punjab , law minister, and home secretary should be suspended with immediate effect,” he said, adding that the chief minister should also be summoned and suspended.
“We know that a powerful individual…powerful groups are behind each such incident. It is a network of criminals,” the PAT chief said.
He maintained that making low-ranking police officers OSD (officer on special duty) will make no difference.
“Make Shehba z Sharif and Sanaullah OSD, catch their MNAs and MPAs and then you will find out the criminal network operating under them,” said Qadri.
