The Ministry of Defence also submitted their replies.
The court was hearing a petition filed by Baloch’s mother seeking production of Uzair Baloch in the trial court.
In October 2017, a joint investigation team tasked with probing crimes committed by Baloch, made startling revelations that the gang war leader had confessed killing security personnel and civilians.
Baloch in his statement claimed that he had the backing of some political quarters. “The assassination of two Rangers personnel in 2013, [namely] Aijaz and Munir, were carried out on my directives in a bid to trap the opponents in the murder allegation,” the gang leader asserted.
