ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday ordered the formation of a judicial commission on the Sahiwal extrajudicial killings - a demand put forwarded by the deceased's family since last three months, sources informed Geo News.
The relatives in the meeting with the premier and Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar on Wednesday expressed their reservations that the government has not yet accepted any of their demands.
The premier assured the family that the government will try to accept all of their demands and handed over cheques to them.
He said that human life cannot be compensated and the government shares the loss with the family.
On January 19, four people were killed by counter-terrorism officials in Punjab, on a busy thoroughfare outside Lahore. Those shot dead included, Muhammad Khalil, his wife, their 13-year-old daughter and the driver of the car, Zeeshan Javed.
Soon after, according to the official version of the events, the CTD was chasing after terrorists and Khail and his family were “collateral damage”. But videos, which later surfaced on the social media, showed the men in uniform firing directly at the car and refuted official claims of an exchange of fire.
