The House offered Fateha for the victims of the Anarkali bomb blast which had killed two people including a 9 year old boy.

The Law Minister said the opposition leader, in his address, had talked of the Murree incident and the Sahiwal tragedy but he never uttered a single word for the martyrs of Model Town killings, adding that it was result of the curses of the victims' families that the PML-N rule came to an end in the province.

"The opposition leader did not feel any mercy when 14 people including a pregnant mother were riddled with bullets by his government", adding that the opposition leader did not let the FIR of these brutal murders be filed while in power.

The Law Minister said Sardar Usman Buzdar fulfilled his promise of making the inquiry report of Murree incident in seven days, adding that the four volume report would be made public while the initial report had been made available to the House. He said the opposition was playing politics on Murree incident.

He said the attackers of MPA Bilal Yasin had been traced by the police, adding that one suspect had fled the country and the government had issued his red warrant.
