Lahore, January 26, 2018 (PPI-OT):Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif presided over a meeting of cabinet’s sub-committee on law and order, here today. Addressing the meeting, the Chief Minister said that hundred percent facts-based investigations should be ensured on the issue of Kasur incident. JIT is working in a professional manner and there should be no room for any mistake or negligence in its investigations.

Best professional capabilities should be utilized for investigations, he added. Cruelty with Zainab in Kasur is a matter of concern for the whole nation and every person should fulfill its social responsibility to curb such happenings in future. JIT should be approached if anybody has clues about Zainab murder case.

He said that Zainab is the daughter of the nation and strenuous efforts are being made to bring the murderer to book. Creation of any ambiguity about Zainab murder case is tantamount to effecting the investigations and keeping in view the sensitive nature of this case; media should fulfill its social responsibilities carefully.

The arrest of the criminal was the result of hard work of investigation teams as the cruelty meted out with innocent Zainab has made the nation unnerved. He said that record of State Bank, NADRA and other agencies will be solicited for the investigation of the case. He said that Asma of Mardan is also the daughter of the nation and we are very much upset over the cruelty meted out with her. The DNA test of Asma has been completed in the forensic lab record and we are ready for further cooperation.
