CTD spokesperson claimed that they had received information that there were three other suspected terrorists on-the-spot, who managed to escape.

Umair, the son of the deceased couple had to say the following:

My papa, mummy, sister and a friend of my father were killed. We survived the firing. We were taken to a petrol station and left there.

Prime Minister Imran Khan has now taken notice of the horrific incident. The PM tweeted:

Still shocked at seeing the traumatized children who saw their parents shot before their eyes. Any parent would be shocked as they would think of their own children in such a traumatic situation. These children will now be fully looked after by the state as its responsibility.

He added:

The grief & anger of the ppl of Pak on Sahiwal incident is understandable & justified. I assure the nation that when I return from Qatar not only will the guilty be given exemplary punishment but I will review the entire structure of Punjab police & start process of reforming it.

We are now to see what action PM Imran Khan will take when he returns from his visit to Qatar.
