Sympathising with the mourners, the chief minister said the killing has sent a wave of anger and shock all across and it has been unequivocally condemned at local, national and international levels.
The suspect has been identified as Zubair Qadri and was seen in the video stealing the pistol of the PSO who was shot dead along with Bukhari.
The police issued the picture from a video, which was purportedly recorded by a passerby following the attack on Bukhari outside his office.
