Pakistan, Lahore News : Chief Minister Punjab Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif Saturday ordered strict action against the gunmen who opened celebratory fire to announce the victory of their candidate in Cantonment Board election.
Earlier, euphoric Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) supporters Saturday made a mockery of the code of conduct as they took to unrestrained celebratory shooting to show the whole city that their candidate has won the election in a Cantonment Board ward.
A footage aired exclusively shows at least two men shooting in the air with AK-47 assault rifles defying Section 144 that prohibits even carrying firearms. Another clip shows a PMLN partisan firing rounds from a pistol to announce his candidate’s victory in Lahore.
The CM has also sought a report from Inspector General of Police (IGP) Punjab.
