Late Air Marshal (retired) Asghar Khan

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Friday issued the detailed order of the Asghar Khan case judgement.
A two judge bench headed by former chief justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar heard the case on Jan 11.
According to the order, the court has summoned defence secretary in person and asked him to submit a reply regarding the developments in the case. “The defence secretary should inform the court about the action taken against army officers.”
The court also expressed resentment over the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) report and ordered the agency to submit a reply within a week. “FIA says that the case should not be pursued further because an investigation cannot be carried out against the accused persons but we think certain elements involved in the case should be investigated.”
The SC order also states that according to the director general FIA, the scope of the investigation is limited. It further adds that the counsel for Asghar Khan’s family lamented over the fact that some things had already been decided in the case.
The court order concluded that FIA did not conduct investigations properly.
