‘CTD version a lie’: FIR lodged against 16 officials in Sahiwal ‘encounter’ case

A First Information Report (FIR) has been registered against 16 Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) officials over an ‘encounter’ that killed 4 in total and 3 of one family, including a teenage girl.

A copy of the FIR was received by Naya Daur.

The CTD officials on Saturday claimed to have killed 4 members of a militant organization in an alleged encounter.

They also claimed that the killed individuals had fired at them, while explosives were also recovered from their vehicle.

Eyewitnesses, however, disputed the claim and said the people in the car did not fire at officials, nor were any explosives recovered from the vehicle.

Jaleel Ahmed, brother of Khaleel Ahmed who was among the ones killed, filed a complaint against the officers after which 16 CTD officers were booked. Residents of the area also took to roads and protested against the ‘encounter’.

Khalil Ahmed and his wife, who were killed in the ‘encounter’.

The FIR was lodged under section 302 (premeditated murder) of the Pakistan Penal Code along with section 7 of the Anti-Terrorism Act, 1997.

Social Media is also talking about the case and asking for thorough investigation.

DC Sahiwal told CM Punjab Usman Buzdar that the CTD version of the story was a ‘lie’

‘Shocking and unpardonable’

Point to ponder.

According to reports, the children of the slain were also present on spot, and they were understandably traumatized.

Prime Minister Imran Khan says the children will be looked after properly as they are state’s responsibility.
