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.

Western, US, Indian and some of local electronic and print media started throwing slush on Pakistan on the name of human rights violation in Balochistan. Chief Justice of Pakistan instead taking only so motto actions on the murder, pulling security and intelligence agencies on the name of missing persons should also take so motto against Baloch lords who are playing in foreign hands inviting CIA and RAW militancy to carry out in Balochistan. Killing of wife, daughter and driver of Mir Bakhtiar Khan Domki is of course condemned able. This act of killing probably has been done by RAW and CIA with aim of fueling the issue of Balochistan. In fact this adventure of maligning and alleging country’s security forces and intelligence agency is the conspiracy against Pakistan’s solidarity and also showing the ulterior motives of CIA, MI-6 and RAW’s joint venture. US and India joint venture is aiming at (1) supporting rebels Baloch leaders for storming terrorism in Pakistan (2) Incorporating Iranian and Afghanis’ Baloch areas in purposed Greater Balochistan, (3) Declaring Pakhtune region as Al-Qaida dominated areas and targeting Gas pipeline. In short, there is a need of resolving the issue politically but at the same time foreign agents busy in fomenting terrorism, abducting and killing innocent people should also be dealt with iron hands.

@Amajad: Well said. He is hungry for cheap popularity at tax payers money and time. Will he please focus on pending cases and letting the concerned people solve it. No one is fool enough to think that his abuse of 'suo moto' will resolve murder mystery.
