Police arrested 110 suspected people involved in Sialkot incident

A total of 110 people engaged in the Sialkot incident for the lynching of a Sri Lankan national have been apprehended, according to information provided by law enforcement authorities to Punjab Law Minister Raja Basharat on Friday.

The statistics were discussed with the law minister during a briefing on the Sialkot event that took place at the Civil Secretariat in Lahore, according to the police.

With the assistance of the factory managers, the officials informed the gathering that the law enforcement agency was in the process of identifying the suspects in the case.

However, officials told the gathering that the Sri Lankan manager was stringent in his work ethics, despite the fact that the law minister encouraged them to determine the motivation for the lynching while conducting the probe.

As part of his order, Basharat instructed the administration to beef up protection for churches as well as foreign industry workers in and around Sialkot. He went on to say that every Pakistani is outraged by the senseless death of a citizen of a friendly country.

There were representatives from the Punjab government, including the chief secretary, the inspector general (IG) of the Punjab Police, the additional chief secretary, the additional inspector general (IG) of the CTD, the special branch, and other officers. The deputy commissioner and district police officer were both present virtually for the meeting to provide an update on the incident and answer questions.

Almost all lawmakers and government officials have expressed their displeasure with the situation that occurred Friday morning.

Both Pakistan’s Prime Minister, Imran Khan, and Punjab Chief Minister, Usman Buzdar, have already condemned the act, with Prime Minister Imran calling it a “day of disgrace” for the country.

Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Imran Khan said, “The barbaric vigilante attack on a factory in Sialkot and the burning alive of a Sri Lankan management is a day of disgrace for Pakistan.”
