The Supreme Court has ordered the inspector general of Sindh police to arrest the murderers of Balochistan MPA Mir Bakhtiar Domki’s wife and daughter by February 24.

The order was passed at hearing on Friday in a suo motu case, where Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry expressed dissatisfaction with the progress made in investigations and arrests.

In the previous hearing, the court had directed that the killers must be arrested by February 10.

Domki’s wife, daughter and driver were gunned down early morning on January 31 near the Gizri Bridge in Karachi’s upscale Defence Housing Authority residential area. The victims were also related to Baloch Republican Party (BRP) chief Brahamdagh Bugti.

Do the thousands of mothers who lose their children by murderers or dacoits yearly weep any different? Long has this country been only a safe haven for the elite. About time things change …

    I sympathize with Domki family but what about a poor Seraiki from Rahim Yar Khan who was killed yesterday in Turbat. He was there to earn livelihood for his poor family. Why PCO judges are silent on it mainly because it would not make them popular?
