SC resumes hearing Quetta Civil Attack case

QUETTA, NOV 12, (DNA):   An inquiry commission on the Civil Hospital attack resumed hearing on Saturday at the Supreme Court registry.

A suicide bombing at the Quetta Civil Hospital in August left over 70 people dead and 112 injured.

The commission expressed its displeasure over absence of a reply on the arrest of the mastermind of the attack.

The Prime Minister, his spokesman and the Police IG are all telling different stories, Justice Faez Esa said.

He said he had the inkling that efforts to sabotage the commission were being made. “Statements are made and then retracted spreading confusion,” he said.

He asked why had the chief minister not shown up for the hearing. “Till the chief minister gives a statement confusion will remain. Ask the police IG about the chief minister’s whereabouts,” Justice Faez said.

“If a statement does not arrive in 20 minutes I will have to summon the chief minister,” he said.

Justice Faez Esa asked the former medical superintendent about the record of guards present at the premises. “Did you check on the security guard on the day of the blast?” the judge asked him.

The court maintained that according to an RMO report some guards were absent on that day.=DNA
