PTI blasts CM Naqvi, IGP for terming Zille Shah’s death as ‘accident’

Former Prime Minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Saturday lashed out at Punjab caretaker Chief Minister Mohsin Naqvi and Inspector General (IGP) Dr Usman Anwar for terming the death of PTI worker Ali Bilal aka Zille Shah as an “accident”.

A PTI worker, Ali Bilal, also known as Zillay Shah, died, several others were injured, and many picked up on March 8 as the caretaker Punjab government used force to block a rally called to launch the party’s campaign for the April 30 elections in the province.

In police custody, the party’s leadership claimed, Zille Shah was tortured and murdered. The Mayo Hospital’s postmortem report, which was released after his death, supports the allegations of torture. It stated that the PTI worker had suffered “major blunt trauma,” with a skull fracture and subsequent bleeding being listed as the cause of death. His testes, liver, and spleen were also reported as having been damaged, which contributed to his extensive bleeding.

Taking to Twitter, the former premier said “These two shameless people would have been jailed not just for lying so blatantly but for insulting the intelligence of our nation”.

“This is what happens when the country is taken over by dangerous duffers who believe everyone is as dumb as them,” the PTI chief added.

PTI’s senior leader Fawad Chaudhry also condemned the duo saying “Akram should be ashamed of himself for serving to change the testimonies at this age”.

In another tweet, the former information minister accused the government of covering up journalist Arshad Sharif’s murder, adding that the “assassination attack on Imran was covered-up and now the death of Ali Bilal’s murder is also being covered-up”.

PTI leader Farrukh Habib tweeted a picture of the two leaders and said “there are shameless smiles on the faces after the martyrdom of Zille Shah (Ali Bilal)”.

PTI leader Shahbaz Gill also criticized Naqvi and Anwar in an indirect tweet and said “Zille Shah’s sigh and their smiles, all in front of you”.
