The Lahore High Court on Tuesday ordered the government to release the inquiry report on the Model Town tragedy within a month.

At least 14 people were killed and 90 others injured in the clash between the police and the workers of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Islami as 17 June 2014, on the Model Town in the Model Town of Dr Tahirul Qadri.

An inquiry panel known as Justice Baqar Najfi Commission was tasked with the incident.

The commission had also reported the statements of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and Law Minister Rana Sanaullah.

Later, the LHC's Justice Mazahir Ali Akbar Naqvi had ordered the government to make public reports of the victims of the tragedy after an application to reveal the report.

The LHC asked the Punjab government to release the requirements of justice.

The Punjab government, however, took an intra court appeal against the court's verdict before a full bench of the High Court, which is the verdict on November 24.

A three member full bench today announced the verdict, asking the government to copy copies of the inquiry report to victim families.

The government is likely to move the Supreme Court against the Lahore High Court decision.
