‘Abid killed people on Punjab CM directions’
LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan on Thursday alleged that former police inspector Abid ‘Boxer’ was involved in the extrajudicial killings on the directions of Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif.
Boxer, a fugitive on the run for 11 years and wanted for dozens of extrajudicial killings, has been arrested from Dubai through Interpol.
Speaking to journalists on Thursday the PTI leader said, “The fugitive former inspector admitted that he used to extra-judicially kill people on the directions of Shehbaz Sharif.”
“He left the country after knowing that Shehbaz was planning to kill him. Boxer is on record saying that he never killed anyone without the consent of the Punjab chief minister.”
Imran announced to go to the court against Shehbaz.
“Give me one example of an extrajudicial killing in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. There is a difference between KP police and the one in Punjab and Sindh,” adding, “ That is the reason why they called them mafia.” He appreciated the professional role of KP police in resolving Asma and Mashal murder case.
“First time there have been action against mob violence. I have regrets for those parties who are turned this into a blasphemy issue.
There is no doubt that Mashal never committed blasphemy. Parties who are making few people hero must think that they are setting a precedent in which anyone can kill anyone. You are trying to bring law of the jungle.”
He challenged PML-N President Nawaz Sharif of holding three times bigger rally on the same venue they organised their public gathering.
Imran challenged him to hold a meeting before him and then he would hold a public meeting at the same venue and people would see which one was attended by a bigger number of people.
He said the nation is happy that the Supreme Court (SC) is ensuring the supremacy of law in the country.
He said an attack on the SC is in violation of the constitution and the PTI would support the Supreme Court.
