Listen to the story
The vehicle that ran over a motorcycle and car on Islamabad's Srinagar Highway on February 1 was being driven by former MNA Kashmala Tariq's son, a witness told the police on Wednesday. Four people were killed after a speeding protocol car of Tariq collided with their vehicles. Tariq is the federal ombudsperson for protection against harassment of women at workplaces. "I saw Azlaan [Tariq's son] driving the vehicle," said Mujeebur Rehman, who was injured in the accident. "We want justice for our families and friends." Rehman's claims are, however, contradictory to Tariq's. She called a press conference on Tuesday and said that her husband, Waqas Khan, and son, Azlaan, were not driving either of the cars. She claimed that the accident occurred because of the negligence of the driver. "I was sitting in our Lexus with my husband," she said, adding that "her son was in the Fortuner with the driver and gunman." The police said that they will investigate both Tariq and her husband in the case. An FIR has been registered by the injured men at the Ramna police station. A case under sections 322 (punishment for murder without intention), 279 (rash driving or riding on a public way), 427 (mischief causing damage to the amount of fifty rupees) and 337G (punishment for hurt by rash or negligent driving) of the Pakistan Penal Code has been registered.

    Regardless of who was driving for real, and who they want to believe was driving, a case should be filed against the owner of the vehicle; bloody politicians do nothing for the populace but want to drive around in motorcades like they’ve conquered Kashmir. Lock her up for lying and her husbsnd for aiding abetting a criminal!

    Safe city footage should be obtained to confirm who was driving
