What time tells us about Model Town incident


Justice Baqir Najfi’s report into the 2014 Model Town incident shows some serious contradiction in position taken by the government officials. For example the Home Secretary claims the situation on ground was not tense between 9:00am to 11:30am, while the medical record of Secretary Health says the first fire arm injured reached Jinnah Hospital at 9:46am!


Similarly, Inspector General of Police claims he received the information at 12:00 noon, while the Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) says the police started withdrawal after 12:30pm.


Below is a brief description of time mentioned by the government officials including the CM. The dotted lines establish link between claim/position taken by the government officials (left side) versus incident taking place that day (right side).
