Balochistan unrest case: SC rejects IG Frontier Corps’ report on missing persons

QUETTA: The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Monday expressed anger over the failure of the Inspector General Frontier Corps to appear before the bench and also declined to accept the report regarding the missing persons.

A three-member bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry heard the case pertaining to unrest in Balochistan at the Supreme Court’s Quetta registry on Monday.

“We do not want to see anyone’s face; we want the missing persons to be recovered. Forces should not be embarrassed; they are being blamed by everyone,” the Chief Justice remarked.

The Chief Justice asked the Additional Attorney General to inform the Inspector General Frontier Corps that the report regarding missing persons was not accepted.

Moreover, he also asked for those FC officers who have cases pending against them to appear in court as only then they would hand over the missing persons.

Justice Azmat Saeed remarked that the officers were not aware of the cost associated with their non-serious attitude.
