ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court (SC) on Monday directed the authorities to complete the probe against military officers involved in Asghar Khan case within four weeks.

A three-member bench comprising Justice Gulzar Ahmed, Justice Faisal Arab and Justice Ijazul Ahsan, took up the case, which relates to distribution of millions of rupees among politicians for manipulating 1990 general elections.

When the hearing resumed, Justice Ahmed remarked that the court would review the report of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) along with the Ministry of Defence response whether the court directives were implemented or not.

Ahsan observed that Rs184 million were disbursed 24 years ago. The compliance report submitted by the FIA sought the court’s help and guidance to collect sufficient evidence for prosecution.

The report stated that efforts had been made to unearth facts and bring the truth to light but investigation had reached a dead end.

On Jan.11, the then chief justice Mian Saqib Nisar after accepting the plea of the family of late Air Marshal (retd) Asghar Khan ordered that the matter be fixed for hearing before a bench after his retirement.
