Judge shot by own guards: Nisar

ISLAMABAD: Additional Sessions Judge Rafaqat Awan, who was killed in the attack on the district courts in Islamabad on Monday, was shot by his own guards, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan revealed during the National Assembly session on Thursday. Nisar revealed that judge Awan had suffered three bullet wounds when his guard impulsively fired his weapon as explosions occured nearby. The Interior Minister made other revelations about the ongoing investigation into the Islamabad court attack that has left 12 dead and 28 injured. He said that intelligence and security agencies had obtained information on Wednesday night that pointed towards the perpetrators of this incident, however it was too early to say who was behind the attacks with complete confidence. He conceded, however, that the target of the attack was a judge who coincidentally was not in court that day. He cautioned members of the Assembly against “rushing to conclusions” as it interferes with ongoing investigations, and assured them that perpetrators will be found and brought to justice.
