QUETTA: Hearing the Balochistan security and missing persons’ cases at the Quetta registry of the Supreme Court on Monday, Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry said that mutilated bodies start to surface whenever the bench hears the case in Quetta, Express News reported.
Heading a three-member larger bench, Justice Chaudhry said, “Just yesterday (Sunday) four mutilated bodies were recovered; you [the authorities] are not taking it seriously.”
The advocate general of Balochistan informed the chief justice that the bodies recovered were not mutilated and that they died in an encounter with the Frontier Corps (FC).
He further said that if the chief justice wanted, he could order the chief justice of Balochistan High Court to investigate the incident.
While reprimanding the home secretary of Balochistan, the chief justice said that the security situation in the province is worsening and that they have destroyed peace in Balochistan.
A representative of the Defence Ministry informed the court that the families of the people who take refuge in “hiding camps” are usually unaware about it.
The advocate general said that evidence should be presented before the court regarding their presence in the camps.
The Supreme Court rejected the report submitted by the defence secretary regarding missing persons.
The court also gave a 15-day deadline to the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to stop the use of illegal cars in the province.
