“The Wazirabad incident is regrettable and we sympathize with all victims that were killed and injured,” he added.
The spokesman asserted that “the police are performing their duties beyond political and group interests” and urged the government to “take notice of the desecration of the police uniform by the party leader”.
The spokesman said that “it is nothing new” for the police to “take such caution in cases related to sensitive national and political issues. “Similar restraint has been shown in the recent past on requests against various political and national leaders for charges of allegations such as insulting national institutions and religious sentiments,” he said adding that PTI leaders are also included among these political leaders.
