A three-member bench of the Lahore High Court (LHC) ordered on Tuesday the Punjab government to release the Model Town inquiry report within 30 days.
The order came on the appeal of the Punjab government against the LHC’s earlier directives to disclose the report on the incident.
The three-member full bench, under Justice Abid Aziz Sheikh, had reserved the decision on the government’s appeal on November 24.
The Punjab government had filed an intra-court appeal against the September 21 decision of a single-bench ordering the release of the inquiry report, authored by LHC Justice Baqar Najafi.
In its Tuesday’s order, the full-bench directed for an impartial and transparent trial into the Model Town incident.
On September 21, Justice Mazahar Ali Naqvi ordered the Punjab home secretary to make public the report on the Model Town killings and provide a copy to the families of those killed and injured in the 2014 incident.
