Punjab caretaker chief minister Mohsin Naqvi and his team have failed to present any footage in which PTI worker Ali Bilal alias Zille Shah was hit on the road by any vehicle.
The Punjab government has claimed that Shah’s death was a result of ‘road accident’ and did not occur in custody, as is being alleged by the PTI.
Interestingly, the government has record of the footages of the vehicle and the two men who brought Shah to the Services Hospital Lahore where he was received dead.
Why no footages of Shah being hit on road not there. It is a fact that there are hundreds of CCTV cameras on Lahore roads…so there must such a footage available. If it is not being presented then it means there is no such footage — Shah was not hit by any vehicle.
Mohsin Naqvi took on PTI chief Imran Khan and his party for peddling ‘propaganda’ especially on social media over the death of Ali Bilal, also known as Zille Shah, ’a special child, against him and senior police officers of the province.
PTI chief Imran Khan, on the other hand, demanded the constitution of a judicial commission to ascertain the ‘true facts’ surrounding Shahs death.
Shah had died on March 8 after violent clashes between police and PTI workers near Imran Khan’s Zaman Park residence.
Foul play was suspected when the post-mortem examination of the body revealed that he died due to “massive blunt trauma, skull fracture, intracranial hemorrhaging and testicular injuries” with a total of 26 injury marks on his body.
CM Naqvi could offer a satisfactory reply when asked, if it was an accident, why Lahore police booked Imran Khan and 400 others in the murder case of Shah.
Police now confirm Shah was picked in a police van during the protest outside the Zaman Park and he along with other few PTI workers were set free near Fortress Stadium. Earlier, the authorities denied a video clip [saying that it from of March 8] showing Bilal and other PTI workers in a prisoner van in which Bilal was saying that PTI won’t spare those committing atrocities against its leadership.
A purported audio said to belong to PML-N chief organiser Maryam Nawaz also surfaced on Saturday, in which a voice believed to be hers could be heard saying: “We should say sorry about the death of the PTI worker but we should give an angle that it was a result of an accident.”
Let’s see if the facts in this come forth and those responsible for this are brought to justice. PAK DESTINY
