ISLAMABAD:Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Choudhry, while hearing the case on the law and order situation of Balochistan on Tuesday showed his displeasure over the investigative report submitted by the Inspector General (IG), DawnNews reported.

 The Chief Justice said that the report submitted by the IG is not categorised on the basis of districts and tehsils.

The Chief justice also questioned the IG for not registering the Sapni road incident case.

He also raised the issue of kidnapping for ransom and questioned the alleged involvement of a certain minister in the kidnapping of a Hindu girl.

He rhetorically asked that what message would go from Balochistan if people are being killed in the province on a daily basis.

Remarks on Karachi

The Chief Justice showed his displeasure towards the law enforcement authorities for not acting on the court’s orders to address the Karachi issue.

“The target killing would have been halted, if the court’s orders were followed,” said the Chief Justice.

He said steps were not taken to de-weaponise the city as directed by the apex court.

The increasing influence of the political parties in the law enforcement agencies has not been addressed there are still no-go areas in the city, he added.
