Sanjrani excuses himself from chairing commission on Baloch students complaints

Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani has excused himself from chairing the commission set up to probe the complaints of Baloch students citing “inevitable reasons”.

As per Baaghi TV report, Sadiq Sanjrani wrote a confidential letter in which he excused himself from chairing the such commission.

Additional Attorney General and Islamabad High Court have now sought new names for the chairman of the commission.

In the last hearing, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif assured the Islamabad High Court (IHC) of making all-out efforts for the recovery of missing persons, saying that he will not give any lame excuse.

“I cannot say that all of the missing persons will be recovered, but we will leave no stone unturned,” he said. “I will not give any lame excuse.”

The premier made these remarks before IHC Chief Justice (CJ) Athar Minallah during the hearing of identical petitions seeking the recovery of six missing persons, including journalist Mudassar Naaru.

At the last hearing, Justice Minallah had directed PM Shehbaz to ensure that the missing persons — whose cases were being heard in the IHC — were produced before the court on Sept 9 and warned that the failure to do so would require the premier to appear in person on the said date and give an explanation.

Justice Minallah remarked the court had referred the matter of missing persons to the federal cabinet multiple times but the cabinet’s response “had not been what it should be”.
