Justice (retd) Khalilur Rehman Ramday on Thursday excused himself from investigating the Bhoja aircraft crash due to his personal engagements.

On June 12, 2013, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) had appointed former judge of the Supreme Court of Pakistan, Justice (retd) Khalilur Rehman Ramday, as head of the judicial commission probing the Bhoja plane crash.

However, Justice Ramday excused himself from probing the incident, citing personal reasons.

On April 20, 2012, Bhoja Air flight 213 crashed on the outskirts of Islamabad, killing all 127 passengers and crew members onboard.

These judges are not angels or free from external pressures besides having no capacity to leading scientific investigations - so it is a bad idea to request Judicial inquiry for each and every disaster the nation faces.
