CM presents cheque of Rs3m relatives of slain Mujahid Ali

Police have solved the mystery of the ice cream parlour employee’s murder in Shah Darah two days ago.

According to the details, the police have arrested two people involved in the murder of the 13-year-old ice cream parlour employee. The boy’s brother Usama has been arrested for reportedly being involved in the murder.

The prime suspect Sufyan was arrested on June 27 while the boy’s brother has been arrested for allegedly assisting in the murder, the police said. Sufyan wanted to have a physical relationship with the 13-year-old, they added.

It is to be noted that police found the dead body of the 13-year-old boy on June 27. The boy was murdered by a sharp object, the police said.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Punjab Hamza Shahbaz Sharif went to the residence of slain Mujahid Ali in Shahdara.

He expressed his sorrow and grief over the tragic incident to the bereaved family and offered Fateha for the departed soul. The CM regretted that their son was unjustly killed and added that he has come to share their grief. ‘‘I cannot bring back your beloved son but I will ensure justice,’’ he assured.

Consoling the bereaved family, the CM said that the accused will not escape from punishment. Indiscriminate action will be taken and this case will be made an example, he further said.

Those who have committed this injustice will be given exemplary punishment and I will personally review the progress on this case; said Hamza Shahbaz and assured that every possible care of the affected family will be ensured.

The government stands with your family; he stated and handed over a cheque of Rs.3 million to the affected family.

Talking to the media, the CM said that making a horrible example of the criminals involved in heinous crimes by enforcing the law is a challenge.

It is the political will of this government that lawlessness will be eradicated; he vowed and regretted that 35% of the cameras of the Safe City project have remained out of order for the last four years. What could be crueller in Lahore than this? This government never sings the mantra of all is good. Instead, we are focusing on building the capacity of the police to control crime; he said and added that crime will be controlled by employing the concept of good policing with the help of the latest technology.

Police are no longer posted on personal likes and dislikes; he emphasised and regretted that appointments were made with the police department on recommendations in the past.

He said that the incumbent government was treating Kasur as a study case and added that he reviews the progress whenever there is an incident of crime.
