Pakistan court orders FIR against PM, 10 others

Islamabad: An additional sessions judge Saturday ordered the police to register a case against Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and 10 others over the alleged killing of three political activists Aug 30, media reported.

The petition was filed by the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), Dawn online reported.

The party had approached the Secretariat police station to register a first information report (FIR) against Sharif, Punjab chief minister Shahbaz Sharif, interior minister Chaudhry Nisar, defence minister Khawaja Asif, railway minister Saad Rafique, IG Islamabad, deputy commissioner Islamabad, IG Railways and three others over the incidents of Aug 30 that led to the deaths of three people during the protests by PTI and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) in the federal capital.

PTI had filed the complaint days after the violence but following the police’s failure to register a case, the party had approached the sessions court.
