PAT lawyers submits audio, video record to LHC

Chief Justice SC orders ATC to hear Model Town case on daily basis

The full bench of Lahore High Court heard the petition moved by the PAT for issuance of summons to Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif and others. The PAT lawyers deposited important audio, video and other proofs based on threats and the talks of the police officers for its onward submission to the full court bench. One video proof is about DIG Rana Abdul Jabbar, SP Tariq Aziz and SP Salman in which these three persons could be seen having a conversation with Syed Altaf Hussain Shah Gilani, chief security officer of the central secretariat.

The said conversation is clearly audible. Syed Altaf Hussain Shah told the police officers in the chat that there is an explicit order of Lahore High Court regarding the installation of barriers, asking them that they could see the detailed order. They could also inspect the placement of barriers by SP Ayaz Saleem and if they still had any doubts, they should ask the CCPO Lahore as he has entire knowledge of the matter related to installation of barrier.

In a show of extreme anger, SP Salman orders a police official Rauf to take over the whole secretariat. On the other hand, Gullu Butt could be seen coming to SP Tariq Aziz after smashing cars and other vehicles who embraces him and pats him on the back. In another footage, DIG Rana Abdul Jabbar is seen scolding a police official as to where his attention is and then it is followed by the start of firing on the women standing on the front gate of Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri.

The video proofs also contain the clips of the press conference addressed by Punjab Chief Minister in the evening of June 17, 2014 and the threatening statements of Rana Sanaullah and Khawaja Saad Rafique.

In one of the videos, Kh Saad Rafique can be seen threatening Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri in these words, “Maulana, do not delay in coming over to Pakistan so that you could be welcomed and you will be accorded such a welcome that you would not dare repeat a similar drama again. In another video, Rana Sanaullah can be heard saying, “You should pray that he (Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri) comes to Pakistan so that we take the genie out of him. He will never dare come back here again.”

Those statements of Khurram Nawaz Gandapur, Fayyaz Warriach and Altaf Hussain Shah Gilani are also part of the evidence that contain their being summoned at H Block Model Town by Nawaz Sharif, Shahbaz Sharif, Hamza Shahbaz, Rana Sanaullah and hurling of threats at them for their denial to stop the arrival of Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri.
