The men, arrested in connection with firing on Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Member of Punjab Assembly (MPA) Bilal Yasin, who is also the nephew of PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif, have made some startling revelations to the interrogators, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Thursday.

Police officials said the shooters had disclosed that they had agreed to take the life of the MPA in exchange for Ice Drugs; that they had been evicted from their homes by their parents a long time ago, and that planning for the attack was done at Muhsin’s outhouse.   

The officials further said that both assassins, namely Majid and Kashif, were addicted to Ice Drugs, and they were intoxicated even at the time of attack

Both of them worked at a meat shop at Morr Khunda. And after they were expelled from their homes, they were living with Mian Vicky’s (a bookie) partner Muhsin at his outhouse, they told the media.

Police said a man named Afzal Pathan had provided them with weapons. It was on Vicky’s instructions that Muhsin tasked Majid and Kashif with murdering the PML-N MPA, the officials elaborated.   

Both the shooters involved in the assassination attempt on Nawaz League’s Member Provincial Assembly (MPA) Bilal Yasin had been arrested yesterday (Wednesday, January 12, 2022.)

The Punjab Police spokesman said in a statement that the two suspects involved in the Bilal Yasin Case had been arrested.

According to the police spokesman, both shooters were arrested during an undercover operation in the Shahdara area.

He said that intelligence raids were carried out at 10 places to arrest both the accused, adding that the CCPO and DIG Investigation formed 16 teams for their arrest.
