Govt re-investigating Model Town tragedy: minister


LAHORE: Punjab Minister for Information and Culture, Fayaz-ul-Hassan Chohan, has said that said the Model Town tragedy is being re-investigated and legal action will be taken against those who were involved in it.

Talking to the media here, Chohan said the bureaucracy had to work under the law to follow the orders of the government and it should not accept orders which were against rules, regulations and laws.

The minister said the bureaucracy should not accept any pressure and should work under the law.

He claimed, Fawad Hasan Fawad was dictated for awarding the tender to a blue-eyed in sheer violation of law, adding that ministries and even prime ministership were used to get personal benefits in the past.

An anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Lahore on Oct 9 indicted former Punjab police chief Mushtaq Sukhera in a case pertaining to the Model Town carnage.

The ex-IG Punjab pleaded not guilty and opted to contest the charges against him.
