In response to the PTI workers’ attack on Sindh House on Friday, the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has moved a local court in Islamabad to have an FIR issued against them.
Specifically, PPP MNA Qadir Mandokhel has filed a petition in the district and sessions court of Islamabad seeking the registration of an FIR against PTI activists for the attack on Sindh House, according to court documents.
Qadir Mandokhel claimed in his appeal that he attempted to register the case with the Secretariat police station but was turned down by the officers.
According to the petition, the accused identified in the petition committed a heinous crime that ought to be punished severely. In addition to the attack on Sindh House, an attempt to promote terrorism was made in this incident.
According to the petition, the SHO Secretariat has released the majority of the accused as a result of pressure from ministerial advisers, rather than registering a case against them. The head of the PPP has asked the court to issue an order for an investigation into the incident.
During a protest, a group of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) workers broke down the main gate of Sindh House and entered the building, according to reports.
They assaulted the building and smashed the main gate to gain entry, yelling anti-opposition and anti-party slogans against the opposition and the party’s estranged members who were residing there at the time.
