Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Muhammed Chaudhry directed the authorities to arrest by Wednesday the assassins of Manzar Imam, MPA of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM).
Heading a three-judge SC bench hearing a case regarding the implementation of the Oct 6, 2011 judgment on the law and order situation and targeted killings in Karachi, arrest of Imam’s killers would be a great challenge for police, adding every citizens is Shahzeb in the court’s sight.
The Chief Secretary Sindh produced a report regarding the implementation on the judicial verdict. Directing to arrest the killers of Muttahida’s MPA by tomorrow, the CJ asserted if his assassins cannot be arrested, then no one else is likely to be captured.
Confessing the Karachi situation is not under 100 percent control, the Chief Secretary said a committee has been formed for the arrest of the MPA’s killers. Responding to this, the Chief Justice said he does not believe in committees.
The CJ queried as to how many bodies were recovered from the city today. The police officials responded five bodies were found by late previous night and three more were recovered early this morning.
The CJ said the newspaper reports said Ajmal Pahari and Kamran Madhoori have been released. On this, police officials said they were under pressure from the courts for the release of Pahari.
On this, the CJ noted the court will issue the release order in absence of evidences.
Justice Gulzar Ahmed said the committees are formed if no work is intended. The chief justice said the Sindh police is politicized, adding Taliban are not such that cannot be controlled.
