LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Thursday announced to approach the courts to uncover the Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s support to former police inspector Abid Boxer in numerous extrajudicial killings.
Talking to media persons, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman alleged that the former cop killed people in staged encounters on directions of the Punjab Chief Minister.
Notorious Boxer was arrested by Interpol from Dubai Airport and handed over to Pakistani authorities on Wednesday. He was infamous for the extrajudicial killings of suspected criminals and has been on the run for last 11 years.
“Boxer has previously admitted that he killed people in numerous fake encounters at behest of Shehbaz Sharif,” Khan said.
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief said all the confessional statements by Boxer are on record, stating that he never killed anyone without consent of Shehbaz Sharif.
Khan said the fugitive had left the country after learning that Punjab Chief Minister was planning to kill him. “Is there a single extrajudicial killing incident took place in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa [in recent year],” the PTI chairman asked.
Referring to recent reports of fake police encounters, Khan commended the KP police and said the differences have become evident now.
“That is the difference between police in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and other two provinces [Sindh and Punjab],” he underlined.
On the occasion, he also appreciated the professional role of KP Police in Asma and Mashal Khan murder cases. “First time there has been an action taken against raged mob,” he claimed while referring to a court verdict in Mashal Khan case. NNI
