LAHORE: Talks between the Punjab government and Minhajul Quran took place on Thursday in a bid to create a new Joint Investigation Team (JIT) for the Model Town clashes, Express News reported. 

On June 17, a clash between Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) supporters and the Punjab police claimed the lives of 14 PAT supporters, while many others were left injured.

An FIR was then registered against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif for their alleged involvement in the incident.

The JIT will be headed by an additional IG who is not deployed in Punjab. Four names have also been put forward for the team, namely, Aftab Cheema, Shahid Hayat, Nasir Durani and Abdur Razak.

Cheema and Hayat have however, excused themselves from being appointed in the team, reportedly due to their close connections with the Pakistan Peoples Party.
