‘Sindh govt issued incomplete JIT report of Uzair Baloch which misses six key names’
KARACHI: Federal Maritime Affairs Minister Syed Ali Haider Zaidi on Tuesday said that the Joint Investigation Report (JIT) of Lyari Gang War ringleader Uzair Baloch issued by the Sindh government was incomplete and it was missing names of six important Pakistan Peoples Party leaders.
“The JIT report issued by the Sindh government comprised of 35 pages only, while the original report had more pages in it,” Ali Zaidi said while addressing a press conference in Islamabad. He was flanked by Information Minister Shibli Faraz on this occasion.
The Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf leader said Abdul Qadir Patel tasked Uzair Baloch to kill Jaleel, brother of Razzq Commando, because he killed Abdul Qadir Patel’s coordinator.
According to the original JIT, Owais Muzaffar and Sharjeel Memon used to supervise gangsters after resignation of Zulfiqar Mirza, he said.
In the original JIT, there was mention of Qadir Patel, Nisar Morai and Owais Muzaffar’s support for Uzair Baloch, he maintained.
According to the JIT report of Uzair Baloch issued by the Sindh government, none of the leaders from Pakistan Peoples Party was named. The head of the Lyari gang war had confessed to murdering numerous people. He also admitted to his involvement in the killing of police and rangers and attacks on the police stations.
Ali Zaidi said the JIT report held by him had signatures of officers of special branch, CID and ISI on all its pages. While the JIT of the Sindh government did not contain signatures of the institutes subordinate to the Sindh government, he added.
Those who are alleged of committing murders roam freely in the parliament, he said.
“I am ready to face any consequences of making the original JIT report public. The chief justice of Pakistan is requested to look into the matter. Several of the facilitators of terrorists were sitting in the parliament. I will file a petition in the Supreme Court to take suo moto notice of the JIT report. The chief justice can summon me and all the signatories of the JIT report,” he said.
The federal minister said that Uzair Baloch had expressed the fear that he might be killed after reveling names of the PPP leaders. Six names were missing in the JIT issued by the Sindh government, he said.
