A three member bench of the Supreme Court headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry on Wednesday concluded the Kohistan killings case stating that the girls in question have been found alive and the claim of the killings was false.

According to a private TV channel, the court stated that the investigative teams were sent twice to verify the claims aired on certain television channels about the killing of the women and the report submitted by the team was found to be satisfactory according to Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry.

He further directed rights activist Farzana Bari to present the court with any other evidence that she might posses. Bari was a member of the fact-finding delegation sent to the northwestern region in the case.
