ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court took suo moto notice of the latest Quetta bombings and issued notices to the Balochistan Advocate General, Muhammad Abdullah Khan Kakar and the Attorney General of Pakistan on Monday.
The officials have been asked to appear in the apex court for a hearing tomorrow.
The notices that were served by the court through its in-house registrar say that the hearing tomorrow would be an open hearing.
This court notice follows public calls from political and religious organizations including Pakistan-Tehreek-I-Insaf (PTI) and the Majlis-e-Wehdat-e-Muslimeen (MWM), which called for placing Quetta under army control so that targeted operations against the terrorist masterminds of this attack be undertaken.
In yet another blood-soaked day in Quetta on Sunday, more than 80 people got killed in a bomb blast at a busy market. The responsibility of blasts has since been taken up by the terror outfit, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi.
