CID report on Hazaras’ killing submitted in court

2670 2

QUETTA: The advocate general submitted before a bench of the Balochistan High Court on Tuesday a report of the Crimes Investigation Department (CID) which stated that an important clue had been found in the Mastung massacre, but said that details could not be disclosed because that would affect further investigation.

Twenty-nine members of the Shia Hazara community were killed by gunmen near Mastung on Sept 20.

The bench comprising Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa and Justice Abdul Qadir Mengal accepted the counsel’s request that due to sensitivity of the matter the report be kept under wraps.

A report prepared by the Frontier Corps was also submitted which said the Levies Force did not coordinate with them in the investigation.

The court noted that although the government had restored the Levies Force, it was not properly trained to combat terrorism and other crimes and directed the government to take steps to improve the force’s performance.

The court also called for measures aimed at better coordination among different law-enforcement agencies to stop terrorist incidents and other heinous crimes. The hearing was adjourned till Nov 23.

    Please do NOT mention religion (Shia) when talking about Hazaras. World should recognize us by our nation name (Hazara) not our religion. Hazaras have suffered enough for being called Shia. International Community in Afghanistan do not implemet development projects in areas where Hazaras live thinking that they are Shia-Muslim and they are supported by Iran, which is NOT the case, Hazara is the only nation being discriminated by Iran Government in Iran. We all know that.
