A 12-year-old boy was allegedly killed after being hit by a vehicle in ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s ‘homecoming rally’ in Gujrat today (Friday).
The boy identified as Hamid Chughtai, son of a rickshaw driver, got hit by a vehicle of the security staff. His uncle claimed that he begged for help but no one stopped.
Speaking to Dunya News, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said the local administration has been directed to investigate the incident and present a report. He said action will be taken as per law.
He further clarified that speed of Nawaz Sharif’s convoy was very slow, thus, there was no chance that such incident could occur in the rally.
