QUETTA: Passing an interim order in the Balochistan law and order case on Friday, the Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry ruled that the Balochistan government has failed to implement the Constitution and in protecting the basic human rights in the province, Express News reported Friday.

The SC stated that the Crime Investigation Department (CID) should investigate law and order cases in the province.

The interim order added that the CID should present a challan of the cases to the Balochistan High Court, while the chief secretary and the defence secretary should submit a progress report in the Supreme Court within 15 days.

Asking the Balochistan government to make efforts to eliminate the inferiority complex instilled in the Baloch youth, the interim order maintained that in the future, no one will be allowed to issue a transit pass and no car will be used without customs duty.

The order added that kidnappings for ransom, targeted killings and emergence of mutilated bodies have not stopped despite the court orders. The FC is blamed for every third missing person, but even FC has lost 432 personnel due to the deteriorating law and order situation, the order said.

The hearing was adjourned till October 31.

    All efforts of Supreme court deserve applause sincerely. However much more was expected from Supreme court what it did in this order. As like before the powerful agencies and FC will ignore the orders of the court and the state of affairs of Balochistan will continue in the old way. We need to realize that we want peace in balochistan before forthcoming elections. Security forces have failed to maintain peace in last 7 years . So, there has to be negotiations with the Baloch militant groups. Thats the only solution for durable peace. Supreme court should have given some strict order against the incompetent government of Balochistan and ordered to stop Death squads of security forces. We can’t afford another fraudulent election in balochistan, it will destroy the country. Peace is per-requisite for fair and free elections and there can’t be any peace without taking the control of Balochistan back from Security forces as they have failed miserably.Recommend

    A clean chit to FC? After months of wrangling, this is all the CJ could come up with? While he made millions in TA DA.
