ISLAMABAD: The federal government on Tuesday gave 30 days time to the Abbottabad Commission to complete its inquiry into the death of al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden and submit a report.
US commandos had raided a compound in Abbottabad on May 2, 2011 to capture the former al Qaeda chief who had been living there for more than five years.
The government subsequently formed a five-member judicial commission to probe the presence of Bin Laden so close to Pakistan’s premier military training facility and the circumstances leading to his death in the raid by US troops.
The commission held investigations, examined witnesses and conducted field missions.
It was earlier reported, that the commission decided to re-examine evidence in light of a recent claim that Bin Laden was dead before raiding American commandos entered his room.
A book supposedly being written by one of the Navy SEALs commandos participating in the operation to kill bin Laden claims that the world’s most wanted man was already dead when American forces reached his room in the upper storey of the compound.
“The circumstances narrated in the books do not match our findings”, a member of the Abbottabad Commission had said.
