Islamabad (March 05, 2018): The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Monday gave one week deadline to the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), Military Intelligence (MI) and the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to submit their reports in Naqeebullah Mehsud extra-judicial killing case.
A three-judge bench, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar resumed hearing in the suo motu case of Naqeebullah murder.
The chief justice of Pakistan expressed his annoyance over the failure of ISI and MI in presenting their reports before the court over the whereabouts of the fugitive former SSP Malir Rao Anwar and adjourned the hearing till 11:30 am, giving the security authorities time to submit their reports.An hour later, a representative of the Defense Ministry appeared before the top court and stated that ISI and MI have sought a week’s time to file the report as they were getting information from field officers.
The bench accepted their plea and also directed Frontier Corps to submit their report on March 12.
Earlier in the day, a representative from the Intelligence Bureau submitted his department’s investigation report while IG Sindh Khawaja also appeared before the court.
The CJP came down hard on the police chief after being informed that Anwar was still at large. Justice Nisar inquired on the delay despite the top court’s orders to seek assistance of all security agencies.Justice Nisar further inquired from IG Sindh whether the security agency had provided him any assistance. Khawaja informed the bench that there was no development in tracking Whatsapp calls.
Referring to a directive issued by the CJP in an earlier hearing to trace dual nationality of SSP Malir Rao Anwar, the Additional Advocate General Sindh said Anwar did not possess a dual nationality. The CJP, however, pointed out that the former SSP possessed an Iqama.
