QUETTA: The judicial tribunal on the Kharotabad incident has found Col Faisal Shahzad of Frontier Corps, former Quetta police chief Daud Junejo and other FC and police personnel guilty of killing five foreigners and recommended legal action against them.
The tribunal submitted its report to Chief Minister Aslam Raisani who has ordered that the report be made public and its recommendations implemented.
Although the provincial government has not yet made the report public, sources said the tribunal observed that former capital city police officer Daud Junejo, Col Faisal Shahzad, SHO of Airport Police Station Fazlur Rehman and ASI Raza Khan were directly responsible for firing on the foreigners and suggested action against them.
The report said that FC and police exceeded their powers in taking action against the four Russian and one Tajik nationals. The tribunal, however, said that the foreigners were well-trained terrorists and had entered Pakistan illegally.
Videos presented before the tribunal confirmed that the foreigners had received terrorism training. But, the report said the five foreigners were unarmed, had no suicide jackets and had no plan to attack police and Frontier Corps when they were killed. They could have been arrested, the report said.
It said the firing by security personnel was unjustified.
