Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah in a statement following the incident said that the government would take action against perpetrators for “attacking” the judicial complex, rioting, and sabotaging the judiciary’s dignity during Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s appearance in Islamabad courts.
In a press conference alongside Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders Azma Bukhari and Talal Chaudhry, the federal minister said that the culprits would be booked and arrested on terror charges.
Sanaullah objected to the “special treatment” given to Imran Khan by the country’s courts and how the situation worsened in the federal capital as his supporters gathered to welcome him.
Sanaullah said: “The banking court, which is present in the judicial complex, was stormed by around 400 ‘worker-like goons’ who were with them.”
“They attacked the policemen on duty by pushing them and ripping their uniforms apart and caused damage to the building by breaking its glass,” the interior minister added.
The Federal Interior Minister said that the wretched Imrani gang attacked the Judicial Commission Islamabad today, broke the gate and broke the CCTV cameras, there has been hooliganism in the Judicial Commission, the Judicial Commission as an institution has been insulted. Therefore, a case is being registered for vandalism, sabotaging the dignity of the judiciary and whoever is involved in it will be arrested.
