Sanaullah:TTP group involved in Khanzada’s killing LAHORE: Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah claimed on Thursday that the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan’s Aftab Group was involved in the assassination of retired Col Shuja Khanzada.
Responding to a call attention notice in the Punjab Assembly, Rana Sanaullah said the perpetrators involved in the suicide attack on the residence of the home minister belonged to the TTP Aftab Group. “Some suspects have been arrested and soon the law-enforcement agencies will capture others,” he said.
He said the Joint Investigation Team and agencies were investigating the matter. “It is a very sensitive matter and a banned organisation has also played a role in the attack. The motorcycle (number) used in the attack has been traced,” Sanaullah said, assuring the House that all those involved in the attack would soon be arrested.
As the discussion on the annual reports 2011-12 of Technical Education and Vocational Training Authority and Punjab Service Public Commission 2012-13 began, PTI’s Sadique Khan pointed out a lack of quorum. Deputy Speaker Sher Ali Gorchani adjourned the proceedings till Friday morning.
Earlier, Parliamentary Secretary on Local Body Ramzan Sadique Bhatti said the government would soon set up a slaughterhouse in southern Lahore and was also planning to shift Gowala colonies from the residential colonies.
Replying to a question, he said Islamic mode of slaughtering was followed at all slaughterhouses of the province.
