ISLAMABAD: 

The inquiry commission on the Abbottabad operation conducted detailed interviews on Monday of Khyber-Pakthunkhwa Coordinator for the National Programme on Family Planning and Primary Health Care Dr Ihsanullah Turabi, the Comprehensive Security Services (Pvt) Ltd Rawalpindi Incharge Bashir Chohan and Maj (retd) Aamir Aziz of Bilal Colony Abbottabad. 

The meeting was held at the cabinet division under the chairmanship of Javed Iqbal, former senior judge of the Supreme Court and the president of the commission. Lt Gen (retd) Nadeem Ahmed, member of the commission, also attended the meeting.

Earlier, sources said the commission was ‘likely’ to complete the probe by the end of January.

However, it has also been reported that compilation of the report is ‘complicated’ and may take longer than expected.

The commission has so far questioned over 100 witnesses, including military and security officials, former foreign secretaries and ministers, police and intelligence officials, former ambassador Husain Haqqani, Bin Laden’s family, neighbours, and media personnel in Islamabad and from Abbottabad.

    The commission : just a waste of resources, nobody expects a revelation in the report. Even if they find out some thing, they won’t be allowed to put that in report.

    where is Abbottabad Commission. The commission had to complete report in December and its now February still no hope that it will be submitted. This is all drama. What the chairman commission is doing.
