LAHORE: The Lahore High Court on Tuesday issued another notice to the federal government regarding the families of Faheem and Faizan, the victims of US contractor Raymond Davis.

Both the families went missing after March 16, the day Davis was released in a double murder case. The court had given the federal and Punjab government 10 days to trace the families and report to the court.

Punjab law minister Rana Sanaullah told the court in a written reply that the families were last seen visiting Rawalpindi along with their lawyer Irshad Kiyani. However, the Punjab government in its reply showed ignorance about the whereabouts of the family.

There was no reply from the federal government, on which the court issued it another notice and adjourned the case till April 19.

    Hello! Civilian Government is toothless in Pakistan, they are just for soaking up the pressure. The real players- the ISI and the Military go Scot free.

    The Families can be found in US, with a greencard. So much for their hatred of the Kafir USA.Recommend

    This has devolved into a bad soap opera – leave the poor family alone – why is the judiciary jumping back into this thing when it was the judiciary that ruled Davis innocent.Recommend

    CJ LHC must grill Mr. Rana Sanaullah who first mishandled this issue and than facilitated. The most safe place in Punjab for this so called missing family can only be in Raiwind.Recommend
