Impartial probe in Kamaliya violence demanded
Monday, June 25, 2012 - Islamabad—Chairman of the National Assembly Standing Committee on Human Rights Riaz Fatyana on Sunday urged the Punjab government to hold impartial inquiry of the Kamaliya violence incident. Addressing a press conference here at National Press Club, Riaz Fatyana said that loadshedding was a crisis, but the government and private properties were set on fire in name of violent protests for loadshedding. It was a game to gain political mileage, he added.
He said that an unidentified motorcyclist killed a man after which the protestors set the motorcycle ablaze and a report was registered by the police after four days of the incident. “I am a self-made middle class man, won provincial assembly seat thrice and become member of the National Assembly twice by defeating all opponent parties,” he said. His wife also won a national assembly seat as an independent candidate, he added.
