ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has announced that a swift action will be taken as soon as the Joint Investigation Report completes its finding about an alleged shootout in Sahiwal.

Four people, including three family members, were killed and two minors received bullet wounds when a team of Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) opened fire on a car near Sahiwal.

The CTD claims that the driver of the car was a terrorist who opened fire at the security personnel leading to a shootout.

Family of the deceased has disputed the CTD’s version, saying their loved ones were killed in cold blood after they refused to pay money.

Imran Khan took to Twitter to express his shock at the raid.

“Still shocked at seeing the traumatized children who saw their parents shot before their eyes. Any parent would be shocked as they would think of their own children in such a traumatic situation. These children will now be fully looked after by the state as its responsibility,” Khan wrote.

In a second tweet, PM Khan said that everyone must be accountable before the law.

“While the CTD has done a great job in fight against terrorism, everyone must be accountable before the law. As soon as JIT report comes, swift action will be taken. The govt’s priority is protection of all,” he added.
