Officials confirmed that 16 members of the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) were booked on Sunday for their involvement in Saturday’s alleged encounter that left four people, including husband, wife and their teenage daughter, killed in broad daylight.

An FIR was lodged at  Yousafwala police station of Sahiwal under Section 302 of PPC and ATC act on the complaint by Jaleel Ahmed, the brother of Khaleel who was among those shot dead by the CTD personnel.

The deceased were on their way to Burewala when they were intercepted by the CTD team in Sahiwal.

On the other hand, the CTD claimed it had killed a local commander of militant organisation Daesh and three others in the operation.

Eyewitnesses, however, disputed the claim and said the people in the car did not fire at officials, nor were any explosives recovered from the vehicle.

Relatives of the slain family ended their protest after the lodging of the FIR earlier today. They had staged a sit-in overnight at GT Road demanding justice and prompt action against the perpetrators, and had refused to be moved until a case was registered against the incident.
