Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah said Thursday that he himself monitored the security situation all night and noticed the people had completely rejected the band of rioters.
In a statement, the interior minister flayed: “Imran Niazi reneged on his promise with the Supreme Court to hold a rally at a designated place, and he broke his word by announcing to march towards D-Chowk.” Rana Sanaullah also stated that the metro bus stations and trees were set on fire by the protesters of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.
“Under the shield of the Supreme Court’s decision, the band of rioters continued setting things on fire all night,” he despised, adding that Imran Niazi continued trampling down the Supreme Court orders from his container throughout the night.
“Imran Khan kept announcing contempt of court all night from his container,” he maintained: “The police did not fire a single rubber bullet. It’s a false propaganda.”
He also stated that at least 18 policemen and Rangers personnel were seriously injured, vowing that Islamabad police and Rangers would continue performing their duty of protecting the life and property of people. “I pay tribute to every Jawan of Islamabad police and Rangers,” he declared.
“The Supreme Court should issue clear orders for ensuring the write of Constitution and state so that the band of rioters could be expelled from Islamabad and the safety of life and property of the citizens of Islamabad could be ensured,” said the interior minister.
