Diplomatic immunity doesn’t allow killing someone, IHC says

ISLAMABAD:The Islamabad High Court has observed that diplomatic immunity does not permit killing someone.

IHC Justice Aamer Farooq gave the remarks today (Wednesday) while hearing a petition seeking the placement of a US diplomat on the Exit Control List, who fatally ran over a young man in Islamabad earlier this month. 

The diplomat was let go by police after registration of a case.

The judge remarked that the police, in this case, failed to follow procedure.  

The hearing has been adjourned to Tuesday next.
