Rana Sana complains of shortcomings in Model Town report

'Ineffective' Baqir Najfi report on Model Town killings does not blame CM Shehbaz, asserts Rana Sanaullah

Police were armed with tear gas shells, sub-machine guns: Model Town report

Earlier in the day, a larger bench of the Lahore High Court (LHC) rejected its petition, challenging a single bench's decision to release the report of the judicial inquiry carried out into the Model Town incident.

Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said on Tuesday that the Model Town incident report had been made public on the internet in compliance of orders issued by Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif.

The main question deliberated in the report is whether the Punjab CM gave the order of "disengagement" and why it was not communicated to those on the ground. Rana Sanaullah announced, "There are legal flaws in the report".

The commission further mentioned in its report that the Punjab CM submitted an affidavit stating that he came to know of the incident in the morning of June 17. Shah said the orders for withdrawal of police were given by the law minister and home secretary.

He further said the report has become a dead document because it has served its objective.

"While putting all the facts and the circumstances in juxtaposition, it has become crystal clear that order of disengagement was not passed at all, rather position taken by the CM Punjab appears to be an afterthought defence...", says the report.

The standoff lasted for nearly 11 hours when the police′s anti-encroachment squad launched an operation to remove the barriers from the road leading to the offices of Minhaj-ul-Quran and the residence of PAT founder Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri in Model Town, Lahore. The meeting was attended by Secretary to CM Dr Tauqeer Shah, instead of Punjab CM Shehbaz Sharif.

He went on and said that the workers of Pakistan Awami Tehreek which were branded as "oppressed" by Dr. Tahir ul Qadri were actually assembled to attack the police officials.

It also says the tribunal was not given complete powers in order to reach the core of the incident and that no one is ready to speak as to on whose orders police opened fire.

"Admittedly, such a level of offensive by police by any stretch of imagination did not commensurate with the level of resistance by unarmed PAT workers", the report says of the police action.

He insisted that Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif was not aware of the incident when it unfolded. "Understandably, all were in unison on withholding information from this Tribunal".

He also clarified that the Punjab government would not challenge the verdict given by the Lahore High Court.
