Punjab government offers a substantial reward to anyone with information that leads to the arrest of the suspects involved in the attack on the official residence of the Lahore Corps Commander. The home department has shared photos of the suspects captured from video footage of the incident and assured the public that their identity will remain confidential.
A committee has also been formed by the police to investigate the attack at the GHQ and police stations in Rawalpindi. This committee is headed by SSP Investigation Zunera Azfar and includes other members like SDPO Cantt, SDPO City, SHO RA Bazar police station, and in-charge investigation support unit.
According to reports, the police have decided to arrest former law minister and PTI leader Raja Bashrat in connection with the attack on military installations. A case has been registered at the RA police station regarding the attack on the gate of the GHQ.
The violent protests by PTI supporters on May 9 caused chaos across Pakistan. The charged protesters entered cantonment areas in different cities, including Lahore, to hold demonstrations. However, the situation turned ugly when the protesters carrying sticks barged into Jinnah House – the residence of Lahore Corps Commander. Video footage on social media showed people looting things from the official residence, setting ablaze furniture, and vehicles. The reward money announced by the Punjab government is expected to encourage citizens to come forward and help bring the perpetrators to justice.
