ISLAMABAD (News10) – Federal Minister for Maritime Affairs Syed Ali Haider Zaidi on Tuesday has revealed that Sindh government tampered with Joint Investigation Team (JIT) report on Lyari gangwar leader Uzair Baloch to exclude certain names.
Holding a press conference with Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Shibli Faraz, Ali Zaidi claimed the report that was made public by the provincial government is different from the one provided to him.
The document which I am having is signed by officers of IB, ISI and other high-level officials. It mentions during investigation, Uzair Baloch had disclosed that Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Abdul Qadir Patel tasked him to kill Razzaq Commando. However, the report presented by Sindh government omits all these details, he added.
Ali Zaidi revealed, “The report unveiled by Sindh has 35 pages with signature of four people while the actual report has 43 pages and signature of six people.” He also criticized the concerned authroities for not covering key information like “why Uzair Baloch committed the murders? who gave the orderson? and who had benefited from them”.
Uzair Baloch’s gang used to behead rival gangsters and throw away their heads. This is not a made-up story from Mexico, this was actually happening in Karachi, he went on to say.
Everyone has seen how Karachi is being systematically destroyed by PPP. Sindh Assembly’s contribution to Pakistan has been phenomenal but PPP has devastated this biggest city with unimaginable bloodshed, he alleged.
The minister said, “Sindh High Court (SHC) had directed to make public JIT reports on Uzair Baloch and Baldia Factory but Sindh government did not follow the orders. I approached the court again for Contempt of Court case and the next day, PPP moved Supreme Court (SC) with an appeal on this matter.”
Ali Zaidi further requested Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Gulzar Ahmed to take suo moto notice against PPP for its involvement with Uzair Baloch under Article 184 (3).
