Events happened before Ammar’s death
Before the passing of his seven-year-old son, the arrested PTI leader Ibad Farooq was allegedly heard in a leaked audio message sent to the party activists saying that he reached the Lahore Corps Commander House to set it on fire. In the alleged leaked audio clip of Ibad Farooq, Ammar’s father is saying he reached along with party leader Ijaz Chaudhary, Mahmood ur Rasheed, and Yasmeen Rashid to set the house of the Lahore Corps Commander on fire.
Ibad Farooq further added that Ijaz Chaudhary had instructed him not to stop until the former prime minister and PTI chairman Imran Khan was released. “We have got clear instructions from Yasmin Rashid to set Corps Commander House on fire,” This shocking alleged audio clip of PTI ticket holder Ibad Farooq came after the arrest of Imran Khan’s arrest when violent clashes were taking place across the country. The violence occurred in remote and major cities as the PTI workers were agitated due to Imran Khan’s arrest, with Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Balochistan, and the capital city summoning the armed forces to ensure law and order.
But the house of Lahore Corps Commander was attacked during the May 9 violence by PTI workers. It is relevant to mention that PTI Chairman Imran Khan was arrested from his residence located in Lahore on August 5 after he was sentenced to three years in prison in the Toshakhana criminal case and disqualified for five years.
