The Sialkot inquiry commission has completed its probe and will submit its findings to the Supreme Court, which is the only authority to give ruling in this regard, said the inquiry officer Justice (R) Kazim Ali Malik, asserting that truth has been found.

The Supreme Court last week constituted a fact-finding commission on the barbaric incident of lynching of two teenage brothers in Sialkot. The country’s apex court took suo moto notice of the gory incident after the media played video footage of the lynching that took place on Sunday August 15.

Until the Supreme Court’s notice, neither the provincial, nor the state or the federal machinery had acted upon the gruesome episode, nor did any of the major political pundits, functionaries or civil society activists rose to the occasion.


Malik, who is also Director General of Anti-Corruption, held a press briefing today in which he said enough evidences have been collected to ascertain the truth. He did not spell out any of the findings, asserting that he is not authorized to reveal anything.

Meanwhile, Sialkot police have claimed to have arrested main accused Muhammad Akram and five others of Buttar village.

According to senior police officials, Akram, 33, disclosed during the preliminary investigation that he got the ropes from Rescue 1122 Daska Road station and tied up the hands, arms and legs of the two victims.
The judicial inquiry of the lynching of the two brothers, Mughais Butt and Muneeb Butt has been completed within the three days as ordered by the apex court. Its report will be submitted to the Supreme Court in the next few days, published reports said.

Malik added that more than one hundred witnesses have recorded their statements, including both parties, doctor, the staff of Rescue 1122, President of District Bar Association and other residents of the area.

“The report consists of two parts, including our recommendations; justice will be served with this judicial report,” Malik told the media.
