Father of child killed during Nawaz’s rally says he has no hope for justice
“I don’t have the power to seek justice,” a visibly tired man, father of 12-year old Hamid told media on Saturday.
Hamid Chugtai, resident of Lala Musa was killed when a car in the convoy hit him and ran over him despite all the efforts of passersby.
Visited by relatives and friends daily, the old man was of the view that powerful people like PAT chief Tahirul Qadri and PTI chief Imran Khan are doing what they could do against Nawaz but “I don’t have the power”.
Answering a question about blood money, he said that he has separated himself from this and two of his brothers are looking into the matter.
Hamid lost his life on August 11 during former PM’s “homecoming” rally in Gujrat.
Eye witnesses had said that the 12 year old Hamid was hit by a vehicle in Nawaz Sharif’s GT Road rally caravan but none of the vehicles in the former PM’s protocol stopped despite onlookers’ cries.
The father of the boy fainted after hearing the news of his son’s accident.
It is pertinent to note here that Nawaz Sharif’s cavalcade had an ambulance and a first aid kit too but none of the cars in the caravan stopped to even look at the boy.
During his speech in Gujranwala on that very day, Nawaz Sharif, however, said that he will personally visit the boy’s house and will help the bereaved family.
So far, Nawaz Sharif hasn’t paid a visit to Hamid’s family.
