PESHAWAR: Adnan Samiullah Afridi has demanded of the United Nations to constitute a commission for investigations into the murder case of his father, Samiullah Afridi, who was a legal counsel of Dr Shakil Afridi, to provide justice to the family.

Speaking at a news conference at Peshawar Press Club on Tuesday, Mr Adnan said that the provincial government had failed to arrest the people involved in the cold-blooded murder of his father despite lapse of four years.

He said that the delay in arrest of the killers had forced him to appeal to the UN for constituting a commission in this regard in order to speed up the process of investigation so that the affected family could know who were behind the murder of the lawyer.

The police, he claimed, were least bothered to share information with the lawyer’s family about involvement of people in the case, adding that file of the case had been put into the cold storage. He said that the lawyer had been attacked by unidentified armed men riding a motorcycle following life threats to him.
