ISLAMABAD- Supreme Court (SC) has rejected Sindh police report in Perveen Rehmani, a Karachi social worker murder case and gave one month period to police to arrest the culprits. The court also directed the police to present detailed report in this respect before it.
A two-member bench of SC presided over by Justice Gulzar Ahmad took up the case for hearing today. Additional Advocate General (AAG) Sindh presented the report in the court and told that a joint investigation team comprising DIG CID Khawaja Sultan and other officers had been constituted to conduct detailed inquiry of this incident and present report thereof. The court expressed dissatisfaction over the report remarking action has not been taken against the culprits so far and police is seen only constituting investigation team.
AAG Sindh told the court that all the steps were being taken for arresting the accused. Justice Gulzar Ahmad remarked “police should know that one year had elapsed and the evidence stand effaced with the passage of time.” Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed remarked “let us congratulate police on such investigation. How sorrowful it is that a life has been lost and whereabouts of the culprits have not traced out. Justice Gulzar remarked “had police taken action so far the culprits would have been apprehended.” The law officer requested the court to give time.
The court while adjourning the hearing of the case for one month summoned the report from the police.
