The federation will not file the review petition against the Supreme Court order in killing of a youth by Rangers in Karachi, said Attorney General for Pakistan while talking to the media persons at the Supreme Court building here on Monday.
Attorney General Maulvi Anwarul Haq said the apex court’s order would be implemented in letter and spirit. Last week, Sindh Rangers killed a young boy, Sarfaraz Shah, in locality of Clifton in broad daylight and the entire incident was widely shown by TV channels. Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry taking suo moto on June 10 had directed the federal government to remove Sindh Inspector General of Police Fayyaz Leghari and Sindh Rangers’ Director General Maj-Gen Ejaz Chaudhry from their posts.
Sindh Advocate General Abdul Fatah Malik talking to TheNation said they had discussed the issue of filing review petition against the removal of DG Rangers and Sindh IG with Dr Babar Awan, “but the former law minister has advised us not do it.” “The Rangers issue is a federal government subject and the federation will deal with it,” Sindh’s top government lawyer said. The Supreme Court had directed the ministry of interior secretary on Friday to post out the IG and the DG Rangers within three days and the deadline has expired on Monday.
The court had asked the federal government to notify within three days otherwise the salaries and other benefits of these two officers will be ceased till the time the notification is issued. During the hearing, the chief justice had remarked: “It was the classical example of barbarism the way the boy was killed.” He said in the presence of these two officers – IGP Fayyaz Leghari and DG Rangers Maj-Gen Chaudhry Ejaz - fair investigation could not be held therefore he ordered the interior secretary to post out them.
West Karachi DIG Sultan Khawaja was directed to take over the investigation and proceed against the culprits and complete the report within 7 days, and submit challans under Section 7 of the ATC
