LAHORE - The saga about the alleged plot to assassinate Chief Justice of Lahore High Court Justice Khawaja Muhammad Sharif has taken an interesting turn as the federal and provincial governments have activated their own investigation apparatus to dig out the truth, most probably in their favour. Surprisingly, the federal and the provincial investigation agencies have come up with conflicting reports as the Punjab police, in its report forwarded to the Chief Minister, has revealed that Col (R) Ahsan-ur-Rehman prepared the controversial but confidential report. However, the Federal Investigations Agency (FIA) has termed the report bogus and said that Col (R) Ahsan has nothing to do with the report, as he disowned the document that has shaken the political circles of the country. Legal experts termed the confidential report as a 'hoax call, saying the only purpose was to create an embarrassing situation for the judiciary. 'To whom you will blame when the finding of one investigation agency is contradictory to the other? questioned renowned lawyer and former Federal Law Minister Dr Khalid Ranjha, when contacted. 'One part of the government is accusing the other part of the government in a counter-blame scenario. They dont want to investigate the matter, he added. When asked about setting up a Judicial Commission to know the reality, Dr Ranjha said that the Judicial Commission could be formed in this case. 'According to the 1969-Act, the Judicial Commission is constituted on the advice of the Chief Minister. But in this case he (CM) himself is a party. How can he help constitute a commission?, he asked. The best solution of this conflict is that someone should come forward with open mind and tender apology to resolve the issue, Dr Ranjha suggested. Former Attorney General Latif Khosa, when contacted, said that the Centre could constitute one-member, three-member or five-member Inquiry Commission according to the Commissions of Inquiry Act 1956. He said that the report could be an attempt to create rift between the provinces and the Federation. He said that in a situation where two different investigation agencies come up with conflicting reports, there should be judicial inquiry to know the reality. 'If the provincial and Federal governments and other stakeholders think that the matter should be investigated, then I think it should be probed properly to find out the truth, Sardar Latif Khosa maintained. More interestingly, Punjab police working right under the nose of Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah, an outspoken critic of Governor Punjab Salman Taseer, was in the field to 'unearth the credibility of the report as well as possibility of alleged assassination plot. Similarly, the Federal government asked the FIA to jump into the ring to crosscheck the report that had 'disclosed the LHC CJ assassination plot stating that the key figures in the Federal government had hatched the plan through hired assassins. Both the rival political parties, PML-N and PPP, have activated the investigation agencies working under their direct command to probe into the report while their middle-level leadership is washing the dirty linen in the public, no matter the country is passing through a critical juncture, facing the worst terrorist attacks in its history.
