Hajj scam: SC orders reinstatement of Hussain Asghar at once


The Supreme Court Wednesday ordered for immediate re-instatement and posting in FIA of the suspended police officer Hussain Asghar, who earlier was investigating into the Hajj corruption scandal.
The three-member bench headed by the Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry was hearing the Hajj corruption scandal case.
FIA Director (legal) told the court that former Gilgit Baltistan IG Hussain Asghar was suspended and a departmental action was underway against him, while a new Gilgit Baltistan IG has been posted.
The court ordered Establishment Division to at once re-instate Hussain Asghar, post him in FIA and apprise of the court about it.
