Six CTD officials to be indicted today in Sahiwal killing case
An anti-terrorism court will indict today six Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) officials, who are currently under arrest, for involvement in the Sahiwal killings.
During last hearing on March 14, suspects could not be indicted owing to their lawyer’s absence.
On January 19, four people, including three of a family, were killed in an alleged shootout in Sahiwal, with CTD personnel claiming they had killed a local commander of militant organisation ISIS and three others in operation. Eyewitnesses, however, disputed claim and said people in car did not fire at officials, nor were any explosives recovered from vehicle.
A Joint Investigation Team formed to probe killings in its final report submitted last month said slain family members were innocent and they were wrongly murdered.Report also recommended strict action against CTD officials who made changes in record.
