ISLAMABAD (Agencies) - The judicial commission formed by the government to probe into the murder of investigative reporter Saleem Shahzad has issued its report, however no culprit is named in it to the dismay of the journalist fraternity.
The commission formed to probe into the murder of Pakistan Bureau Chief of Asia Times Online (Hong Kong) and Italian news agency Adnkronos (AKI) Syed Saleem Shahzad, whose torture-marked body was found from Upper Jehlum Canal near Sarai Alamgir in Mandi Bahauddin on 30 May 2011, was mandated to submit its report within six weeks.
However, it took about half year to issue its report with no culprit nominated.
The commission, in its report presented to the Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, recommended Rs3 million in compensation to the assassinated journalists heirs.
The government is expected to make the inquiry report public today (Friday).
