Karachi (HRNW) The reports of the joint investigation teams in the Baldia Fire, Uzair Baloch, and Nisar Morai cases will be made public.
The Sindh High Court announced its order on Tuesday on a petition filed by Federal Minister for Maritime Affairs Ali Zaidi. The provincial government has been ordered to publish and provide the petitioner the officials copies of the reports. The verdict was reserved on December 23, 2019.
Zaidi, in his petition, said that the facts in all three cases should be made public. He said that the joint investigation teams in all three cases included members of the ISI, MI, and FIA among others.
Many police and government officials were implicated in the cases. Now, those officers hold important positions and people should know who they are, the federal minister’s lawyer Advocate Umar Soomro argued. “The Sindh chief secretary wants to protect these people.”
More than 200 people were killed in Baldia Factory fire, the lawyer said, adding that Lyari had turned into a warzone when Uzair Baloch was still living there.
