LAHORE: Police presented a 50-page challan in an anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Lahore on Saturday in which they stated that Gullu Butt was responsible for the Model Town tragedy, Express News reported.
Police produced Butt before the court and handed in the challan which stated that the Model Town incident escalated due to Butt's involvement in it.
On August 2, an ATC had ordered police to complete the challan against Butt by August 9, however, an investigation officer had requested the judge to grant him more time to complete it.
Butt was caught smashing cars during the clashes between Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) workers and the police outside the Minhajul Quran International Secretariat on June 17.
He smashed windscreens and windows of private vehicles with his club, while police officials looked on and the vandalism continued unabated.
On August 5, a division bench of the LHC had sought investigation record from police on a bail application by Butt.
His counsel had submitted that he was mentally unfit and that police had wrongfully implicated him in the case.
