QUETTA: The Supreme Court on Wednesday ordered Chief Minister Balochistan Nawab Aslam Raisani, the interior secretary and defence secretary to appear before the bench in the next hearing on Balochistan law and order case.

Ordering the chief secretary to summon the three officials on Thursday, Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry maintained that if the prime minister can appear personally before the court then anyone can.

The three-member bench also ordered the representatives of all intelligence agencies, including Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), Intelligence Bureau (IB) and Military Intelligence (MI), and inspector general of Frontier Corps to appear before the bench tomorrow.

The chief secretary informed the bench that he contacted the agencies but none of them have replied to him yet.

The court asked the advocate general regarding the reports he was asked to present on the missing persons in the province.

The advocate general informed the court that the missing persons had not been recovered as yet, and added that a number of meetings had taken place but nothing had come out of them.

The court then directed the deputy attorney general to present the missing persons by today.

The Supreme Court will continue to hear the case till all the missing persons are recovered, the bench maintained.

Finally the PCO trial court has found the main culprit who is torturing and dumping the bodies. Bring down yet another elected official. Thanks for being in overdrive and blaming one for writing the Memo and the other for not writing. As long as Punjab CM and PML-N leaders are safe like the generals everything is fine.

Baluch cabinet ministers including CM is looting money with both hands and playing circus in the province, they are the real culprits and responsible for most of the problems of Baluchistan as they have done nothing for the betterment, Baluch separatist movements should talk about incompetency of their provincial Gov. before condemning Punjab
