Junaid Jamshed plane crash: SHC issues show cause notice to secy aviation over delay in inquiry report
KARACHI: The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Wednesday issued a show cause notice to the secretary aviation over delay in presenting the inquiry report of the plane crash in which pop-singer-turned-naat-khwan Junaid Jamshed along 47 other people, including his wife, lost their lives.
The high court has directed the session judge Islamabad and attorney general to get the notice implemented. The SHC expressed resentment over not presenting the plane crash inquiry report to the court on time.
The SHC has expressed angriness over not relaying the court about the expiry date of the unfateful Pakistan International Airline (PIA) ATR plane. It also directed the director Civil Aviation Authority to present a clarification in this regard.
The petitioner in the case said that 55 planes had met accidents in the 60-year history of the airline. 20 incidents of them were of seizure of engines of ATR planes.
The complainant claimed that the incident of plane crash in which Junaid Jamshed passed away took place for failure of the engine of PK-661 on Dec 7, 2017. An inquiry was conducted following the incident which turned out abortive, he added.
Three years ago, on December 7, 2017, Junaid Jamshed along with his second wife and 47 other passengers had lost their lives when a plane crashed in Havelian.
The 52 years old Jamshed, who had abandoned his music career to follow the path of Allah, was returning from Chitral from a religious trip along with his second wife when the plane crashed in the mountainous region of Khybeer Pakhtunkhwa’s Hazara division.
Jamshed launched his music career with Vital Signs music band and went on to become the most celebrated pop singer of the country with the release his debut album.
He quit musical career after release of his fourth and the last album in 2002 to start his spiritual journey.
