ISLAMABAD: Monday, August 23, 2010:

Human rights group Press For Peace (PFP) on Monday asked Chief Justice Mr. Iftikhar Choudhary to continuously monitor the investigation of Sialkot killing incident so the culprits are brought to the justice.

 “PFP considers it an act of revenge the hidden factors of which will come to fore with passage of time and investigation if made across-the-board”.

 PFP Director T H Shah said in a statement issued here on Monday.

He said that the brutal and cannibalistic murder of innocent young boys Mughees and Muneeb in the presence of the crowd of peoples as well as law-enforcing personnel is ‘blot on the Islamic and democratic character of the state of Pakistan’.


T.H Shah further said that the killings of two innocent citizens in such a barbaric way could not be possible without the collusion of political and civil bureaucratic administration as instead of stopping the culprits on the site, the police remained as silent spectator and above all, made dilly-dally in registration of FIR.


The PFP criticised the behaviour of Dr. Ferdous Ashiq Awan who is political representative of the constituency where incident took place. Instead of criticising and standing by the victim family, she displayed inhumane attitude and sided with the culprits by labelling the murdered hooligans and loafers.

“The statement of Dr. Ferdous represents political irresponsibility and further makes strong the hands of real culprits and encourages the other likely incidents of such nature in society,” the statement added.
