ISLAMABAD - The Supreme Court on Friday directed the DPO Sukkur to arrest all the members of the jirga who have recently passed a verdict to hand over 12 girls in Vani. A tribal jirga headed by a local landlord in the limits of Raza Goth Police Station in Pano Aqil to settle feud between the two warring factions of Mehar community in Lakhi Ghulam Shah, a tehsil of Shikarpur, had given the verdict when the aggrieved party demanded compensation against the murder of his four people. A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and comprised Justice Muhammad Sair Ali Khan and Justice Ghulam Rabbani was hearing a petition moved by Samar Minallah regarding a case of Swara/Wani in Sukkur. During the proceeding, the court also directed DPO Sukkur Aitzaz Duria to submit a challan of accused in the competent courts, while the lower courts have been ordered that on receiving the challans hear the cases on day to day basis and dispose of the matter within three months. The DPO was further ordered to submit its report fortnightly at the SC Registrar office. Advocate General Sindh Fateh Muhammad Malik informed the court that an FIR has been registered against the accused and they also have recovered four girls and arrested two members of the jirga. He said out of total 12 girls except one, who is 16 year-old the ages of other girls are between 6 to 8 years. The AG Sindh apprised the bench that four people were murdered in 1999 but a nine-member jirga settled the dispute recently by ordering that 12 girls should be handed over by the tribe of murderer to the aggrieved families, besides imposing a fine of Rs 2.7 million. Samar Minallah, petitioner, informed the court that custom was in violation of PPC3(10) and a judgement of Sindh High Court, Sukkur Bench, which it passed in 2004. The court expressing its concern observed that how could a parallel judicial system was still in vogue in Sindh province and dispose of the matter.
