KARACHI: Pakistan People's Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto expressed concern over Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's leaders shielding barbaric criminals in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (K-P).
The chairman of PPP expressed deep concern over the sheer negligence of K-P government and its police in ferreting out the real culprits in medical student Asma's murder and other heinous crimes.
K-P police has completely failed to perform in Asma rape, murder case: SC
In a statement, Bilawal said that reports that "the killers of medical student Asma, Sharifan Bibi, minor girl Isma, and student Mashal are still at large due to the backing of influential people belonging to the PTI are disgraceful."
"It appears that PTI has become a party of several Ladlas ganged up together to protect and guard killers, murderers and even terrorists,” Bilawal further added.
Bilawal further said that a local PTI leader who incited a mob for the barbaric murder of innocent student Mashal Khan has not been arrested even after nine months.
Reports have also confirmed that nephew of PTI Kohat president and the identified killer of medical student Asma have fled to Saudi Arabia, which is not possible without the collusion of K-P government, he added.
PPP Chairman pointed out that as per media reports the killers of Sharifaan Bibi and minor girl Asma were also being shielded by influential leaders of PTI in KP.
The Supreme Court (SC) observed on Tuesday that Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) police has completely failed to perform in the case of rape and murder of minor girl Asma in Mardan.

The three-member bench, headed by the Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar, was hearing the case. The bench wondered why the K-P government has no forensics lab of its own to test DNA. “You have no capacity to investigate the matter, therefore, you are dependent on Punjab government,” the CJP said.
