Admitting a petition challenging the inquiry report in the Bhoja Air crash probe on Tuesday, the Islamabad High Court issued notices to the respondents in the case, Express News reported.
The hearing was headed by Justice Riaz Ahmed Khan.
Eight heirs of the crash victims pleaded to the court that the airline authorities were forcefully getting them to sign agreement papers pertaining to cases after handing an amount of Rs5 million to them.
They alleged that the members of the inquiry board were responsible for the crash.
The counsel of the petitioners said that the inquiry board’s report should be made public.
Justice Khan accepted the plea and issued notices to the federation, interior ministry, Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), Inspector General of Police (IG) Islamabad and Capital Development Authority (CDA) and sought replies.
On April 20, 2012, the Bhoja Air flight from Karachi burst into flames after coming down in fields near a village on the outskirts of capital Islamabad as it tried to land in rain and hail at the city’s international airport.
