Taseer’s family slams report on probe


LAHORE – The family of the late Punjab governor Salman Taseer, who was assassinated earlier this year, expressed shock and anger on Wednesday at comments in a news report claiming that it had not made sufficient effort to ensure that the investigation of the governor’s assassination was carried out properly.
A source close to the family said that it was deeply upset by the comments, and said how it followed up on the investigation was entirely the family’s business. The late governor’s family said it was wrong to assume that the follow-up was deficient in any way simply because the family did not wish to advertise how it was pursuing the case. The family reportedly called the report misleading – and felt that parts of the story were based on conjecture, the source added.
