QUETTA, Oct 5: Khan of Kalat Mir Suleman Daud has said the supreme council formed by the grand Baloch tribal jirga has approached lawyers in the Netherlands for filing a case in the International Court of Justice regarding on alleged violation of an accord signed with the Khan of Kalat by the British and Pakistani governments in 1948.

He said relevant documents had been sent to the lawyers for preparing the case. He said the Baloch jirga had empowered the six-member supreme council to take the issue to the ICJ.

He said the jirga had formed two other bodies — the national council and the grand national council — for solving problems of the Baloch people.

Baloch Sardars will be members of the national council and it will meet twice a year. The grand national council will compromise Baloch Sardars, politicians, intellectuals, students and labourers and will meet once a year under the chairmanship of the Khan of Kalat.

Mir Daud said the supreme council would meet every month to review the situation in the province and implementation of decisions taken by the grand Baloch jirga in Kalat on Sept 21.
