ISLAMABAD - The Supreme Court on Thursday issued notices to the NAB chairman, Islamabad Police chief, Polyclinic Hospital medical superintendent and Pakistan Telecommunication Authority and sought reports from them about the death of Kamran Faisal, a NAB investigation officer. A two-judge bench, comprising Justice Jawwad S Khwaja and Justice Khilji Arif Hussain, was hearing a constitutional petition under Article 184 (3) regarding the death of the NAB official.Kamran Faisal – second in charge of the Rental Power Plants probe – was found dead last Friday in a government hostel in Islamabad just days after the Supreme Court ordered the arrest of Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf over the long-running graft scandal into the RPPs. Chief Justice IftikharChaudhry on Wednesday took suo moto action following a report listing the doubts of Kamran Faisal’s spouse and father. Hearing of this case was conducted on Thursday. During the proceedings, Justice Jawwad S Khawaja said: “The crime and evidence of unnatural death of Kamran suggest it being having some relevance with the apex court’s RPPs case order implementation.” The court wanted to know the truth,” said Justice Khawaja, “It is an obstruction to the course of justice; an interference in investigations.”He observed that Kamran was under immense pressure taking the probe. He said it was the duty of the NAB to investigate under section 31D of NAO who pressured him. NAB Chairman Admiral (retired) Fasih Bukhari and other functionaries were issued notices for being mindful of the events occurring from January 15 till the death of the investigation officer.NAB Quetta Investigation Officer Hamid Munir and brother-in-law of Kamran informed the court that his laptop was missing. Other family members of Kamran categorically stated they had told police that he was murdered and it was not a suicide. Besides, the police did not register an FIR. An autopsy report ruled his death a suicide. Kamran’s family and colleagues disputed the findings and called for a judicial probe. During the proceeding, the court observed that the police should have registered an FIR. It learnt that no one had approached the police. Justice Khilji remarked that if a crime had been committed, then police itself could register an FIR. The Islamabad Police IG was directed to appear before the court on January 28, but do submit a report on the actions taken so far by Saturday (today). Hamid Munir pointed out that senior functionaries of the NAB, including its deputy chairman, met his brother-in-law on the night between January 17 and 18. The meeting was held at the NAB office.The PTA was directed to submit record on the call log on Faisal’s cell phone and communication took place between the various persons linked directly or indirectly with the case regarding implementation of Supreme Court’s RPPs judgment on January 26. Hamid Munir told the court that a flurry of activities took place between January 15 and 18 at the NAB office. The court, therefore, sought CCTV footage and entry and exit record of Federal Lodges (that might show Faisal’s check-in and check-out) and also entry and exit record at the NAB’s office. The hearing was adjourned till January 28.
