ISLAMABAD: Karim Khan, whose brother and son were killed in a drone strike, on Monday submitted an application for the registration of a First Investigation Report (FIR) against Central Investigation Agency’s (CIA) Station Chief Jonathan Banks.

Khan submitted the application in the secretariat police station Islamabad, where he was accompanied by his lawyer.

Sources informed that the police will forward the application to the prosecution department to seek legal opinion in this regard.

The decision to register the FIR will be taken once the prosecution department gives its opinion.

Talking to the media outside the police station, Khan appealed for legal action with regard to his application.

Khan, a local journalist from Mirali town in North Waziristan, had earlier sent a $500 million claim for damages to the US Defence Secretary Robert Gates, CIA chief Leon Panetta and its station head in Islamabad Jonathan Banks.
