The minister stressed that the government of Punjab had adopted a “zero tolerance policy” for planners, facilitators, and perpetrators of violence. He said that the federal government, military leadership, and the Punjab government have decided to punish the attackers. The minister also claimed that the agencies have confirmed the presence of the terrorists in Zaman Park through geo-fencing.
PTI’s Response to the Allegations
Taimur Khan Jhagra, a politician belonging to Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf said that the allegation that Khan is hiding riot suspects is only going to increase the political temperature and it is very dangerous. “It is very rich of this caretaker government, which is in power only to hold elections, not even do their constitutional duty. They are leading a crackdown of a sort that has never before been seen in the country,” he said.
