The Police in NA-75, Daska on Friday registered the FIR of a firing incident at former MPA Jameel Ashraf ahead of by-election in the constituency.
The case was registered on the complaint of Ashraf’s gunman. The FIR states that 14 persons had resorted to firing at Kasowal at the behest of Chairman Union Council Chaudhry Iqbal Ran which spread terror in the area.
The FIR mentions five persons by their names while nine other unidentified persons as well.
Talking to the media after registration of the case, UC Chairman Ch Iqbal Raan, belongs to PTI, said that these were PML-N goons who had fired at him and his associates but strangely enough police had booked him and his party men in the case and not them.
He accused the PML-N leaders of trying to steal the by-poll scheduled for Saturday (today) by bribing the voters. “But we will not let anybody steal this election,” he expressed the resolve.
At the same time, however, Raan said that his men had resorted to firing only in self-defence. He advised PML-N leader Ata Tarar to think before levelling allegations.
Regretting that despite complaining to the police, the case was not registered against the real culprits, the chairman union council called upon the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to take notice of the incident.
