Pak SC unimpressed over 'India's RAW, Israel's Mossad behind Pak kidnappings' claims

   Mar 17, 3:42 pm

Islamabad, Mar 17 (ANI): The Pakistan Supreme Court has said it is unimpressed over claims that Indian spy agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) and Israel's Mossad were behind kidnappings in Pakistan.

Counsel for the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency and the Military Intelligence (MI) Raja Irshad told the apex court that Indian spy agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) and Israel's Mossad were active in Pakistan, and were being helped by terrorist groups.

But, the chief justice asked the defence counsel if the agencies had any credible information of the involvement of RAW and Mossad, and if so, why had they not taken any action against them.

"We did not bar you from taking action against RAW and Mossad," The Express Tribune quoted Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, as saying.

Friday's hearing continued in the usual fashion - a displeased court reprimanded the intelligence agencies for the treatment of the Adiala 'missing' prisoners.

"Were they not human? Why was the right to a fair trial denied to them? We will proceed against you after making some initial decisions," he said, adding: "You will tell us how the four of them died in your custody."

Terming the intelligence agencies' reply on Adiala missing persons unsatisfactory, the apex court took suo motu notice against the abduction of a young man who used to provide food at camps set up by relatives of missing persons outside Parliament.

A two-judge bench, headed by Chaudhry, directed Inspector General of Police Islamabad and Attorney General of Pakistan Maulvi Anwarul Haq to submit a report of the incident by today (March 17) and present the 'missing' boy before the court on March 19. (ANI)
