At least 14 people were killed and 100 others injured in police action against Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) workers in Lahore’s Model Town area during an ‘anti-encroachment operation’ on June 17, 2014.

Jawad Hamid, a member of Minhaj-ul-Quran International, had filed the petition that requested the court to summon twelve individuals including former Punjab law minister Rana Sanaullah and Khawaja Saad Rafique.

Further, Punjab Inspector General Mushtaq Sukhera was ordered to appear before a trial court.

Soon after LHC announced the verdict, PAT chief Tahir-ul-Qadri said he was going to challenge the decision.
