Malik said: "In my personal opinion old planes should not be included in the airline fleet besides enquiry was underway as to why old planes of only Cathay Pacific come here".Rehman Malik said that it was his appeal to Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan not to play politics on the bodies of victims. "By expressing his reservation on the judicial commission, he (Nisar) has tried to hide his own guilt," he said.
