Islamabad—Police on Saturday stated that millions of damages made during D-Chowk sit-in will be paid by the arrested suspects.
Police has asked for claims from the containers and truck owners whose property was burnt during the four-day protest by the supporters of Mumtaz Qadri, former Punjab governor Salman Taseer’s assassin.
The claims will be made part of police file and will be paid by the people accused of torching the property.
An estimated 25,000 supporters of Qadri forced their way into the capital from Rawalpindi, where they had gathered Sunday afternoon to observe chehlum of Mumtaz Qadri.
The protesters damaged Rawalpindi-Islamabad Metro bus stations and other government and private property.
In a move to block the routes, they also set the trucks and containers on fire which were placed by the authorities, resulting in a loss of more than 40 million to the owners.
