ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice Supreme Court of Pakistan Iftikhar Mohammed Chaudhry has taken suo motu notice of the murder of MPA Balochistan Bakhtiar Domki’s wife and daughter, Express News reported on Sunday.
According to sources, a three member bench of the Supreme Court will probe the case and had summoned Advocate General Sindh and Inspector General Sindh Mushtaq Shah in this regard, on Monday.
Domki’s wife, daughter and driver were gunned down in the wee hours on the morning of January 31 near the Gizri Bridge in Clifton.
The victims were travelling in their black Toyota Mark II car (ANR-353) when the killers reportedly intercepted them and shot them dead at point-blank range.
The deceased were also related to Baloch Republican Party (BRP) chief Brahamdagh Bugti.
The unknown assailants had managed to escape, while police officials said that the killings appeared to be the result of personal enmity.
Earlier on Friday, Interior Minister Rehman Malik had indicated that a ‘third-force’ was behind the target killing.
Malik added that the government had constituted a high-powered committee consisting of two members each from Provincial Assemblies of Balochistan and Sindh. An additional Inspector General of the Police would head the committee, which will also include representatives of the Inter Services Intelligence and the Intelligence Bureau.
