Baldia factory: Sindh High Court adjourns hearing

 Lyari gang war kingpin Uzair Baloch
The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Monday put off the hearing of a petition filed by Federal Minister for Maritime Affairs Ali Zaidi seeking to make public Joint Investigation Team (JIT) reports of the Baldia factory inferno, Lyari gang war kingpin Uzair Baloch and former Fishermen’s Cooperative Society chairman Nisar Morai.

A two-judge bench adjourned the hearing until April 22 owing to the absence of the petitioner’s lawyer.

In the previous hearing, the SHC har ruled that it will make public the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) reports public after carefully reviewing them.

The sealed JIT reports have already been submitted to bench in pursuance of its orders.

The Karachi-based lawmaker had moved a petition in the high court seeking directives for the law enforcement agencies to make public JIT reports of Uzair Baloch, Morai and the Baldia inferno case.

He, in his petition, contended that more than 250 people lost their lives in the Baldia incident but the JIT report had not been made public yet. The JIT reports of Uzair Baloch and Morai have also not been made publically available, he added.

The minister claimed that Morai had spilled the beans about involvement of senior politicians in the murder of seven people during his questioning by the JIT.

“It was the right of citizens to know about the suspects investigated during the JIT investigation.”
