Minister for Law Azam Nazeer Tarar presented the report of the cabinet committee on May 9 investigations during the caretaker government.

As per sources, the report has declared the PTI's direct involvement in the May 9 riots case. The federal cabinet has decided to enact legislation based on the report. 

Cabinet members have mutually demanded resolution of the cases against the elements involved in the May 9 riots. 

According to sources, cabinet members suggested that if the culprits of Capitol Hill can be penalised, why the main culprits involved in the May 9 riots haven't been indicted yet.
