An inquiry committee has been formed to investigate the death of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf worker Ali Bilal, whom the party claims was murdered at the hands of the police.
A clash between PTI workers and Lahore police took place at Zaman Park a day earlier in which a worker died and other party workers and police officers were injured. PTI leaders claim that the administration is to blame for their party worker’s life. The Punjab home department had imposed section 144 in Lahore due to serious security threats. The clashes occurred while police attempted to disrupt the gathering of the PTI workers at PTI Chairman Imran Khan’s residence Zaman Park.
Reacting to the demise of Ali Bilal, Imran Khan had written on his official Twitter handle, asking all PTI representatives across the country to offer funeral prayers in absentia today (Thursday).
