The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

Af­fected chil­dren of Ka­sur in­ci­dent, their par­ents and res­i­dents of Hus­sain Khan­wala vil­lage met Punjab Chief Min­is­ter Shah­baz Sharif, here Sun­day. Dur­ing the meet­ing, the af­fectees an­nounced to end their boy­cott of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion of Joint In­ves­ti­ga­tion Team (JIT) and ex­tend their full co­op­er­a­tion in the in­quiry.

Talk­ing to the af­fectees, the Chief Min­is­ter an­nounced to im­me­di­ately with­draw the cases reg­is­tered against the pro- testors and di­rected IG Po­lice to take nec­es­sary le­gal ac­tion in this re­gard.

Shah­baz Sharif said that the Ka­sur in­ci­dent is la­mentable and painful. He said that jus­tice will be pro­vided to the vic­tims at any cost. He said that no hur­dle will be tol­er­ated in the pro­vi­sion of jus­tice and stern ac­tion will be taken against any­one try­ing to hin­der this process.

The Chief Min­is­ter promised to the af­fectees that pro­vi­sion of jus­tice to them is his re­spon­si­bil­ity which he will dis­charge at any cost. He said that he was deeply grieved over this sad in­ci­dent and as soon as he got in­for­ma­tion, he wanted to come to them but could not do so due to some rea­sons but he has been per­son­ally mon­i­tor­ing this is­sue.

He said that Ad­di­tional IG Spe­cial Branch has been trans­ferred from his post for his ig­no­rance about the mat­ter while DPO Ka­sur has been trans­ferred as OSD due to mis­han­dling the case. The Chief Min­is­ter said that JIT has been con­sti­tuted to hold an in­quiry into the mat­ter and be­sides po­lice, it also com­prises rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Fed­eral In­tel­li­gence Bureau and ISI.
