Pak court pulls up Punjab govt for slackness in ex CM`s case
Lahore: A Pakistani court has issued notices to the government of Punjab province and the police for slackness shown by them in conducting a probe against former Chief Minister Sardar Dost Muhammad Khosa for the alleged kidnapping and murder of his actress wife Sapna Khan.
The Lahore High Court issued the notices on Tuesday in response to a petition filed by Missal Khan, the father of Sapna.
Azhar Siddique, the counsel for Khan, said the police had registered a case against Khosa six months ago on charges of kidnapping and murdering Sapna but had not arrested him.
Khosa too had not secured pre-arrest bail from the concerned court, he said.
He asked the court to direct police to arrest Khosa at the earliest and to submit charge-sheet after completing their investigation.
The court sought replies from the provincial government and the police within a week.
Khosa`s relations with current Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif have been strained as he believes that the latter had let him down in the case.
