LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Monday sought an explanation from the Capitol City Police Officer (CCPO) of Lahore Aslam Tareen about the mysterious absence of the families of Muhammad Fahim and Faizan Haider, the two men who were killed by US national Raymond Davis.

A petition was filed by one of the former lawyers of the deceased’s families.

The petition asked the court to take notice of the sudden disappearance of the families following the release of Davis.

LHC Chief Justice Ijaz Chaudhry heard the case and ordered Tareen to present a report on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Leader of the Oppostiion in the National Assembly (NA) Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz would support the formation of a judicial or parliamentary commission to probe the Raymond Davis case.

Speaking to Express 24/7 in Islamabad, he said that people are still confused about the results of case, adding that they have the right to know who the real culprit is.

The opposition leader said that Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani did not take his party into confidence over the issue.

He was of the view that an independent commission should be formed to probe the case.
