No justice for drone attack victims


The Islamabad High Court (IHC) will take up for hearing a drone attack case on Tuesday.

A single bench comprising Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui will hear the case. The IHC had ordered for the registration of murder case in respect of two persons killed in drone attack at South Waziristan in 2010.

The petitioner sought contempt of court proceedings against the SHO Secretariat police for not registering a murder case of two persons killed in drone attack.

Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui had summoned IG Police Islamabad Tahir Alam on a previous hearing and ordered him to the register murder case besides seeking a report on the same from him.

The IHC has set up nine benches including five single, two division and two special division benches to hear the cases in the judicial week commencing from Monday.
