PTI worker Ali Bilal died in a car accident, not in a clash with police: CM Punjab

LAHORE/ISLAMABAD: Caretaker chief minister of Punjab Syed Mohsin Naqvi said that a PTI worker Ali died in a car accident.

He refuted PTI’s claims of the death of their worker in clashes with police.

PTI worker Ali Bilal who died on Wednesday at Zaman Park

On Wednesday PTI leaders blamed Punjab Police for the killing of its worker Ali Bilal. He was famous by his nickname Zille Shah.

The administration of Lahore had imposed Section 144 in the city citing severe security threats for seven days while the PTI had announced a rally on that day.

Consequently, clashes occurred between police and enraged PTI workers which caused injuries to both sides.

However, the PTI chairman cancelled the rally against the backdrop of the imposition of section 144 and clashes.

Chief Minister of Punjab, nevertheless, gave no further details of the incident.

Importantly, the Lahore police have registered a murder case against PTI chief Imran Khan, Fawad Chaudhary, and others for their alleged involvement in the murder of a PTI worker Ali Bilal.

PTI announced a rally in support of the judiciary and establishment on Wednesday in Lahore. However, the city’s administration imposed section 144 on the same day.

It led to clashes between police and PTI workers at Zaman Park, outside the residence of chairman of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf Imran Khan.

PTI leaders and their party’s supporters are feeling enraged by an unexpected delay in elections in Punjab and KP. Punjab and KP assemblies were dissolved over a month ago, but still, an uncertainty shrouds elections
