Sialkot incident: Special prosecution team from Lahore to visit factory



A special prosecution team from Lahore will meet officials of the Sialkot police on Friday in the case of the lynching of Sri Lankan national Priyantha Kumara.

The team will visit Rajco Industries and inspect the factory site. The police will provide the prosecution with 12-hour CCTV footage (of the incident) obtained from over 100 cameras.

Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar has instructed the team to ensure that the trial of the suspects is completed as soon as possible. The police have, so far, arrested 139 people of which 34 are main suspects.

Earlier, Gujranwala’s anti-terrorism court remanded the men into police custody for 15 days. On Thursday, the prime suspects were brought to the Punjab Forensic Science Agency for the photogrammetric test.

The forensic examination was conducted of the suspects’ faces from the videos obtained from the attack.

The photogrammetric test is a forensic technique that is useful to have an accurate 3D reconstruction of a crime scene, especially in cases where position, distance, and perspective are important. It extracts measurements from photographs.

The authorities said that results will be available within a few days and will be used in investigations and challan (police investigation report).—INP
