Zaman Park operation was conducted to clear no-go areas: Rana Sanaullah

Minister for Interior Rana Sanaullah says Zaman Park operation was conducted to clear the no-go areas and to arrest the miscreants hiding inside.
In an interview with a private news channel, he said the police were fired upon and pelted with stones from inside the house, which is regrettable.
He claimed that in the course of the operation, weapons have been seized and slingshots used to pelt stones at the police were recovered from the house.
The Interior Minister said the recovery of weapons from inside the house shows the mindset of Imran Khan, who wants chaos and anarchy in the country.
He added that the residents were facing difficulties due to encroachments around the former premier’s residence.
Sanaullah claimed that the police conducted an operation against ‘miscreants’ who opened fire on the unarmed personnel.
To a question, he said that Imran Khan was not ready to sit with opponents and the mindset he possessed was in front of everyone.
On the other hand, Punjab Caretaker Information Minister Amir Mir said that the operation was carried out against the people involved in the assault on policemen.
He went on to claim that firing was done on the police from inside Zaman Park and firebombs were also thrown from the other side of the residence’s boundary wall.
