ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The Supreme Court on Friday sought a progress report from the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) in Asghar Khan case.
A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar heard a case related to Asghar Khan case. During the hearing, FIA Director General Bashir Memon appeared before the court.
Bashir Memon informed the bench that over a dozen people were issued notices, however, they couldn’t make it to the court owing to the closure of roads. The top court directed the FIA to submit the report within six weeks.
