Gunmen twice target Supreme Court Judge’s Lahore house!

Published

on

LAHORE: Unidentified gunmen fired shots – in two separate incidents only hours apart – at the house of SC Judge Justice Ijaz-ul-Ahsan here last night and this morning.

According to details the first attack took place at 10.45pm last night  while the second firing took place at 9.10am. A  9mm bullet casing was found in the veranda of the house last night while another was found near the kitchen.  However, no casualties were reported. 

After the attacks CJP reached Justice Ijaz’s house and summoned Punjab IG, who has been asked to investigate the incident. CJP is monitoring the matter himself. Shahbaz Sharif, CM of the province, while asking IGP to submit a report, ordered immediate arrests of the attackers.

Cynics are trying to find a connection between the attacks and the fact that Justice Ijaz-ul-Ahsan is the  monitoring judge of the ongoing corruption references against Sharif clan, filed by NAB in an accountability court. They are also trying to figure out why the attack came just days after SC gave its historical verdict about life-time ban on Nawaz Sharif.

DERA ISMAIL KHAN: PTI candidate Ikramullah Gandapur – who was contesting elections on provincial assembly seat from the constituency of PK-99 – died here at Combined Military Hospital where he was taken in critical condition after he was gravely injured in a suicide blast at Kulachi area today. 

According to details, Gandapur was on his way back home after addressing a corner meeting when the attacker detonated near his vehicle killing the driver, seriously injuring Gandapur, two policemen escorting him and a passerby. Ikramullah Khan Gandapur was shifted to Combined Military Hospital in critical condition and other injured were taken to District Headquarter Hospital here.

 Body parts of the suicide bomber’s body were collected from the site for forensic tests. PTI chief Imran Khan took to the twitter to condemn the attack: “Strongly condemn the cowardly terrorist attack against Ikram(ullah) Khan Gandapur and his convoy today. May Allah grant Ikram and the other injured a speedy recovery”.When contacted, the area police claimed that though LEAs had already informed Gandapur apropos death threats to him, he opted to move sans informing the authorities that have assigned thirteen gunmen for his security. Gandapur held the portfolio of agriculture and livestock minister in PTI’s last government.

Israrullah GandapurReaders may recall that Ikramullah’s brother Israrullah Gandapur (PTI Minister for Law, Parliamentary Affairs, and Human Rights) too was bombed to death along with seven others while he was greeting people during Eid-ul-Azha in October 2013.
