ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Tuesday, reiterating that the Balochistan government has failed in providing security to its people, issued an order for immediate recovery of missing persons, Express News reported.
Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry was heading the bench hearing the case pertaining to the security situation in Balochistan.
The court said that 432 Frontier Corps (FC) officials have been killed and more than 1,000 people have been victims of target killings and minority persecution.
Enquiring from the Crime Investigation Department (CID) officials present in court, the chief justice asked them why they were not working in Balochistan and why no intelligence-gathering was being put into effect.
The court said that not even one person involved in these killings had been brought to justice as yet, to which the CID officials responded saying that 34 officials of their own had been victims of target killing.
The attorney general said that a review petition in the Balochistan case had been filed with the SC registrar but it had been turned down saying it “scandalised” the Supreme Court.
Justice Chaudhry directed the AG to pursue the matter and resubmit the petition.
Ordering the Balochistan government to recover missing persons, the Supreme Court adjourned the hearing till December 5.
