Earlier on February 11, the Supreme Court has ordered the Defence Ministry to complete the inquiry against the army officers involved in the Asghar Khan case.

Hearing the Asghar Khan implementation case on Monday, a three-member bench headed by Justice Gulzar Ahmed remarked that why the army officers were not court martialled. “The MQM founder also got the money, but his name did not surface,” it remarked.

The court remarked that the matter will move forward after the completion of the inquiry. “Court martial can be conducted at any time if a fraud is committed or loss is caused to the national exchequer,” he said.

The attorney general stated that the name of the MQM founder was in the FIA report, but he was not in Pakistan and talks were going on with the British government in this regard.
