Jinnah House case: Punjab police says all planners 'including Yasmin Rashid' to be brought to justice

  • Provincial police to challenge court order discharging PTI leader, says any premature assumption at this stage is likely to be misleading
Published June 4, 2023

The Punjab police said on Sunday that they will challenge the Lahore court’s decision to discharge PTI leader Yasmin Rashid in the Jinnah House attack case, stressing “all conspirators, planners, and perpetrators” of the May 9 incident, including the former Punjab health minister, would be brought to justice.

The provincial police, in a statement shared on its official Twitter handle, said the investigation into the Jinnah House attack was being carried out on scientific lines.

“The court order is being challenged as the police were not given the opportunity to present forensic evidence in the case,” the police said.

It said the court order regarding Rashid’s case will attain finality after the order of the High Court, adding: “Police reserves its right to investigate the case and to bring the truth before the public.”

“Any premature assumption/inference at this stage is likely to be misleading,” the police advised.

The statement comes after PTI chief Imran Khan claimed Yasmin Rashid’s release from the prison meant the “PTI as a party had no hand in the arson” at the Lahore Corps Commander House on May 9.

“Now that Dr. Yasmin is pronounced innocent in the arson at Lahore CC house, it means that as the President of Central Punjab, PTI as a party had no hand in the arson,” Imran tweeted earlier.

He further claimed the entire “crackdown on PTI was on the pretext that the party had planned the violence.”

“Now this narrative has been blown apart,” he emphasized.

An anti-terrorism court in Lahore on Saturday discharged PTI leader Yasmin Rashid in the Jinnah House attack case and ordered her immediate release from prison.

Rashid was among the PTI leaders who were taken into custody under section three of the Maintenance of Public Order (MPO).

The former Punjab health minister was facing charges of hate speech against state institutions and involvement in attacks on Jinnah House during the May 9 protests.

On May 13, the LHC had ordered her immediate release, saying that if she is not required in any criminal case, then she should be released.

However, the PTI leader was again arrested.

On May 29, an Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) in Lahore had sent the PTI leader to jail on a 14-day judicial remand in the same case.

What madness drove IK to go against the very people who brought him into power in high hopes that he's the one who would change this country. But he turned out to be a big disappointment both for the people who pull the strings and guys like me who voted for him and were really rooting for him.

@Rizwan , IK had one objective - to become PM of Pak no matter what means were taken on the way. ''Tabdeele'' was just a slogan people of Pak heard in 70s disguised as ''roti, kapra aur makan''. Hunger for power is destroying the country.

What’s happening in Pakistan is madness. It is a world display of power haughtiness. In an Islamic Republic of Pakistan, the right first step should have been to have a inquiry to transparently determine who engineered and orchestrated the destruction of the infrastructure. Even in Islamic tradition the sanctity of a single human life is more sacred than Kabaa (in Mecca).

That is fine but there must be an investigation why the CC house security was absent or removed. Strange. And who exactly is the person in a jacket who was egging on the protestors. Is he being interrogated?

The theory that the damage was pre-staged. In Pakistan, a common man cannot entry cantonment zone without going thru a check post. Wake up Pakistanis, can’t you see how this may have unfolded by people who wanted to see this happen and use it as a precursor for unleashing terror in the land.

@Shahid Khan couldn't agree more. Not only system is exposed but true character of the nation is also exposed, all those claims of I love Pakistan, fake patriotism made in relatively good times are exposed and it's revealed ke pyat se barh ke kuch nhi not even your motherland.

Always remember - PTI's madness (a conspiracy fully exposed) of dharna in Islamabad _ came to an end only when school boys were blown up outside an army school. What can you expect from a power hungry man - i.e. IKN
