Spokesperson for Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Gill said on Monday that the provincial government stands shoulder to shoulder with the family of deceased killed by the Counter Terrorism Department in a shootout at Sahiwal.

“We will do whatever is possible to get justice,” said the spokesperson.

Gill said the Punjab government facilitated a meeting between the JIT members and late Khalil family’s relatives at the chief minister house.

“PM Imran has made it clear that the government is with the family,” he said.

On the question, why late Zeeshan’s brother was not present in the meeting, the spokesperson said that ‘he is also on board’.

Jalil, the brother of late Khalil, said that he is expected to meet JIT chief Ijaz Shah tomorrow.

“Only after the meeting we will be able to tell if we are satisfied with the government’s performance on the issue or not,” he said.

The family’s counsel, Barrister Ehtisham said that Jalil will record his statement before the JIT tomorrow, and said that the family has not received any pressure from any quarters to take back the case.
