Karachi unrest: SC orders computerisation of culprits' record

27 November, 2012

KARACHI: The Supreme Court (SC) has ordered computerisation of culprits' record in Sindh within three months on modern lines, besides directing the chief secretary to provide funds in this regard.

A five-member bench of the court issued these orders during hearing of the Karachi unrest case on Monday. The bench comprised Justice Athar Saeed, Justice Sarmad Jalal Osmani, Justice Tariq Khilji, Justice Amir Muslin Hani and Justice Anwar Zahir Jamali.

The court while expressing dissatisfaction over the Rangers' report on the accused arrested during the last 22 days said there was ambiguity in the report presented during the previous hearing.

The Rangers' report said 64 culprits had been arrested during 55 raids conducted within the last 22 days. Justice Hani directed that the Rangers DG appear in the court on Wednesday and the court be told about every accused arrested and the police officer he was handed over to.

He further observed if the Rangers kept the accused in their custody and handed them over to police after two months then no accused would be punished.

Giving his remarks on the Rangers' report, Justice Hani said, "Your report is not satisfactory and your previous report was also ambiguous. Detailed report be presented and the Rangers DG should come to court too."

Prosecutor General Shahadat Awan presented the report during hearing on the accused persons released on parole. It was revealed in the report that total number of the culprits set free on parole was 70 while the cases equalled 177.

Additional Secretary Waseem Ahmad presented the new policy with reference to the issue of new licences.
