ISLAMABAD: The government has formed a judicial commission to investigate the death of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) official Kamran Faisal, Express News reported on Sunday.

Faisal – who was looking into alleged kickbacks by the premier in transactions involving rental power plants – was found hanging from the ceiling of a government hostel room on January 18.

His death came 24 hours after the NAB chief told the Supreme Court that it did not have enough evidence to arrest Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, as directed by the court last week.

The deceased’s father had requested for this judicial inquiry.

The commission, headed by Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal, has two weeks time to submit its findings.

A five-member medical board, which conducted Faisal’s autopsy, and the Secretariat police had said that the NAB officer’s death was an apparent case of suicide and refuted claims that any torture marks were found on his body.

Another open ended case, this will go on forever with no results. If we have done all the cases swiftly on time, Mr Rental shouldnt be our prime minister now!

We start cases, commissions, etc and these die down without simply any results! and I am afraid this will not be any different unless a team of god fearing and sincere people come into power and clean the system from these idiots.

Until that time, media will cry for few days, courts can take notice, but shameless will carry on what they are doing while laughing at us!

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha! What's the point? This is a country that does not want to know the truth about its own leaders' death -- from Jinnah to Liaquat to Zia to BB. So many people have been killed, bumped off, assassinated in Pakistan. How does one small, poor, honest official matter, hain?
