LAHORE: The PML-N has approved in principle the formation of new provinces on administrative basis, however any division based on ethnic and racial basis would not be accepted. PML-N sources told Geo News reporter Irfan Nazeer that the special committee formed by PML-N President Nawaz Sharif held three meetings in the last five days. The recommendations of the committee will be sent to Islamabad for Nawaz Sharif’s approval next week. The committee has also advised that any formation based on ethnic and racial basis would cause trouble between the provinces and that is why a package should be presented for the formation of new provinces. The opposition has called for a meeting in the National Assembly on 11th August to present the resolution of the division of Punjab, whereas the President and Prime Minister have also hinted to the formation of a Seraiki province by 14th August.

Shahbaz attends US I-Day celebrations Published: July 02, 2010 Shahbaz attends US I-Day celebrations (THE NATION) LAHORE - Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif Thursday attended a function in connection with the 234th Independence Day of the United States at the residence of American Consul General Carmella Conroy and cut a cake. Speaker Punjab Assembly Rana Muhammad Iqbal, provincial ministers, MNAs and MPAs, and a large number of people representing different walks of life were also present on the occasion, says a press release. Addressing the function, Shahbaz said the Independence Day was of great significance for any country as it promoted awareness about the history and achievements. Congratulating the American nation on the day on behalf of government and the people of Punjab, he said Americans could rightly feel proud of the fact that their country stood as the sole super power of the world and a global leader in every sense. He said Pakistan was facing a heavy loss of human lives and damage to property in the war against terrorism, adding that poverty, ignorance and deprivations bread terrorism. Shahbaz said Punjab offered excellent opportunities for economic cooperation and investment, and the provincial government looked forward to building stronger links with the United States in various sectors. The host, Carmella Conroy, also spoke on the occasion.
Pakistan Social Contract had taken a hike when Sharif Brothers raised a very detrimental slogan "Jag Punjabi Jag" against the "Federation of Pakistan"
His Excellency should know (from reports filed by the US Consulate’s Political Officer at Lahore, surely) of the Punjab Government’s open revolt against the Federation, led by the Establishment’s then blue-eyed son, Nawaz Sharif, the Chief Minister of Punjab no less. As part of which mutiny Punjab government funds were used to foment rebellion against the “Sindhi Prime Minister” by printing and distributing flyers and buttons and bumper stickers and banners exhorting the Punjabis to wake-up. ‘Jag Punjabi Jag’ was the chilling slogan.

KARACHI: The Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s parliamentary party leader, Dr Farooq Sattar, has claimed that various officials of Lahore Development Authority (LDA) are being deputed in Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) “under a planned conspiracy to make Karachi a colony of the Punjab.” In a statement issued on Thursday, he said that “the MQM will never allow Karachi to become a colony of Punjab despite all odds and hurdles.” He claimed that just after the imposition of Governor’s rule in Sindh, various officials of Punjab were being deputed to different organisations like KDA and KMC, “which is not hidden from anyone.” “This indicates that the only aim of the government is to impose Punjab’s policy as it wants to capture Karachi instead of restoring peace in the city,” he added.

KARACHI, Oct 14: The former Sindh police chief Rana Maqbool was arrested on Thursday, according to ISPR which also claimed that Mr Maqbool was at large since Tuesday and his arrest was made by the police. The IG of Sindh, Asad Ashraf Malik, who took charge of his office on Wednesday, confirmed the arrest and said that Rana Maqbool himself surrendered before the police on Thursday. The IG police also confirmed that the DSP and SHO Airport, Mehboob Khan and Zafar Cheema, respectively,were also arrested on Thursday. He said the police had been conducting raids to arrest Rana Maqbool since Tuesday. On Thursday around 6pm, Mr Malik said, Rana Maqbool himself made a telephonic contact with him and said that he could produce himself only before him. Mr Malik said that he invited him to a place other than his office and arranged Mr Rana's meeting with his (Rana's) wife before he handed him over to the "concerned authorities". Mr Malik said that he made it clear to Mr Rana that he was required to clarify his position vis-a-vis his presence at the airport on the eve of army chief's arrival there on Tuesday. However, mystery shrouds the events that preceded the arrest of Rana Maqbool as there had been reports which said that Rana Maqbool, who was supervising the action being undertaken by the police of Karachi and Sukkur divisions at Karachi and Nawabshah airports to arrest army chief Gen Pervaiz Musharraf on his arrival from Colombo. He was taken to an unknown place by the army soon after he was arrested.
There were also reports that he was later handed over to the rangers.
DIG Karachi Akbar Arain, who was at the airport with IG Rana Maqbool, has already been detained besides DIG Crime Faruq Amin Qureshi, DIG Sukkur Akhtar Memon and SP Nawabshah Gondal. FIA OFFICE: The office of a senior official of Federal Investigation Agency, Chaudhry Sharif, was raided and record wastaken into custody by the troops. The ISPR expressed ignorance about the raid, but FIA sources said that the record was seized and Chaudhry Sharif, assistant director, had gone into hiding.
Meanwhile, around two dozen workers of Pakistan Muslim League (N) were arrested by police at Regal Chowk when they attempted to stage a demonstration against the dismissal of Nawaz Sharif government. The PML workers, out-numbered by the personnel of police and other agencies, were picked up by police soon after they reached the busy shopping centre in Saddar. The sacked Karachi Metropolitan Corporation administrator Mushahidullah was among those arrested by the police.

"As the lanes were narrow and congested, the officials decided that the operation to arrest the accused would be carried out with the help of female cops. Thus two teams of police, one comprising female cops and headed by an inspector, and the second one comprising male policemen participated in the operation." The SSP said the first team comprising Shamim, Saira and an inspector, in veils, reached the spot and warned the terrorists to surrender. The terrorists fired at them but the second police team returned the fire. The exchange of fire resulted in the instant death of Kamran alias Tanky, he added.The SSP claimed that Kamran was a notorious criminal and was wanted in more than 33 cases, including 15 cases of killings. He said police hunt for the other accomplice of the dead terrorist was on.
Meanwhile, the Mohajir Qaumi Movement has strongly protested over the killing of Mohammad Kamran and alleged the rulers of giving the "imported police" license to kill. The government, in order to establish its rule forcefully, has employed illicit tactics, the statement alleged. To add insult to injury, the government promotes and awards police officers who are involved in the brutal operations of picking up people and killing them on the streets in fake police encounters, party spokesman stated.

Mystery of the coded message Daily DAWN, Karachi
KARACHI, Nov 7: The agencies investigating the case of Hakim Said have either found no convincing or tangible evidence so far to be able to assume that the Karachi-based MPA who received a coded message soon after the murder of Hakim Said had a direct or indirect link with the plan, or, for reasons known to them alone, they have decided not to work in that direction. Inquiries have shown that the man who had received, within half an hour of the murder, a coded pager message which, according to experts, was self-explanatory, has not been targeted at any stage of the inquiry so far. This, according to observers, gives rise to doubts about the credibility of the investigations made by various agencies so far.
The pager did not belong to MPA Zulfikar Haider, who was named by the prime minister in his press briefing and later in the FIR as the key figure in the Hakim Said case, inquiries showed. Consequently, the name of the MPA (who received the pager message) was not mentioned in the FIR registered against MPA Zulfikar Haider and six others, including Aamirullah, who is in the police custody.
The coded message was deciphered by experts following the recovery of some papers from the 12-seater Mazda used in the killing of Hakim Said which was later found abandoned at Eleandor Road. Well-placed sources, who declined to identify the MPA and the party he belongs to, only said that "the MPA who received the coded message was not Zulfikar Haider". It is being asked why the law enforcement agencies and investigation teams did not work in that direction when the agencies knew about the coded message. These sources said the papers recovered from the abandoned vehicle included one bearing the number of a pager, which is in possession of an MPA hailing from Karachi. That was the only coded message received on that pager that day, the sources said. http://www.karachipage.com/nawaz_f.htm
KARACHI, Nov 4: The government produced Shaikh Mohammad Aamirullah, accused in the murder of Hakim Mohammad Said, before the High Court of Sindh as directed on a habeas corpus petition filed by his mother. The mother and son met for the first time in the office of the additional registrar with the permission of the bench which heard the petition. The accused, according to the advocate general M. Iqbal Raad, has not so far given his confessional statement which is required to be given before a magistrate under Section 164 CrPC. He has only confessed to having had a part in the murder before the police and notables, the bench comprising Chief Justice Kamal Mansur Alam and Justice M. Roshan Essani was informed.
The hearing of the habeas corpus petition was taken up on top of the lists of cases fixed for the day and lasted for about 30 minutes. Sardar M. Ishaque and Qazi Khalid Ali, an MPA, appeared for the petitioner, Akhtari Begum, wife of Shaikh Mohammad Attaullah, resident of A-66/1, A-Area 'B' Road, Liaquatabad, Karachi Central, who had challenged the arrest and detention of Aamirullah.
The petition cited the home secretary, the inspector general of police, and SHO (Anti-burglary), Liaquatabad as respondents. Qazi Khalid, a former minister in the coalition government in Sindh, submitted before a packed courtroom that there were contradictory versions of Aamir's "confessional statement" given by the prime minister and the advocate general. He said the prime minister had been on record as having told a countrywide audience that Aamirullah had confessed to murdering Hakim Said, but the AG, Mr Raad, maintained that no confessional statement had been recorded and that the accused had only confessed to involvement before the police and notables.
Qazi Khalid requested the court to summon the prime minister to ascertain which of the two was telling the truth. He then observed that the prime minister has misled the nation on the television network by claiming that Aamirullah had confessed to the whole thing, thus maligning the MQM in the eyes of the public throughout the country through print and electronic media. He said making statements before the police was one thing and confessing before a magistrate on oath another.
The court, making its observation, said the defence could raise this point before the trial court, and that the present proceedings concerned the habeas corpus petition. The bench ordered the medical superintendent of Civil Hospital Karachi to examine the detenu from Thursday and submit his report within 10 days. The court also directed the police to allow the mother, her counsel Sardar Ishaque to visit the CIA Centre where the detenu had been lodged since his arrest on Oct 22.
Qazi Khalid submitted that the detenu had been tortured so much that he was unable to walk. He pointed out that Aamir was supposed to have been produced on television the other day but at the last moment the programme was cancelled. He also said if the prime minister's reference to Aamir's so-called confessional statement were true and if his statements had been recorded under sections 164 and 364 CrPC, the accused should have been remanded to judicial custody under the mandatory provisions of Criminal Procedure Code. He further said Aamirullah had not been arrested in Hakim Said's murder so far and under the law if he was being made an approver, even then he should be made an accused first and approver later. Therefore, the counsel argued, his detention was without lawful authority and to give the cover of legality to his arrest he had been falsely implicated in other cases in which remands had been given by the magistrates.
In his para-wise comments on the petition, the advocate general submitted that the detenu was arrested on the night of Oct 21 under section 54 CrPC by the SHO of Liaquatabad police station and, during the course of interrogation, he had named 12 crimes in which he had been involved. He said Aamir was an absconder in those cases and had been nominated in two cases of Liaquatabad police station. The AG said the detenu had admitted his involvement in the murder of Hakim Said and had himself led the police to seize unlicensed weapons - a kalashnikov and 103 live rounds- from his house in 'A' area Sindhi Hotel, Liaquatabad. He was arrested in the case No 339/95 under section 13-E, Arms Ordinance and case No 643/95 under section 302, 324 Qisas and Diyat Ordinance, 34 PPC of Liaquatabad police.
The AG maintained that Aamir had been legally arrested and was under lawful custody of the police by virtue of the remand granted up to Nov 2 by the judicial magistrate. He also denied allegations of maltreatment and torture. The AG's statement also included details of 16 cases against Aamirullah and in two of them his name has been mentioned in the FIR. He was arrested by Gulbahar police in a murder case and challaned in absentia in 13 other cases. FASIH CASE: On a petition filed against the death in custody of Fasih Ahmed 'Jugno' filed by his mother, Mumtaz Begum, the government has filed comments in which it has been stated that a judicial inquiry has been ordered to be conducted by the district magistrate of the Central district. But, he said, the petitioners were not coming forward to record their evidence and were filing petitions.
The government's statement said in order to determine the specific cause of Fasih's death, the petitioners should join the right forum and if there were any grievances after the inquiry report had been submitted, they could file petitions. The petition filed by Syed Qasim Raza against the arrest and detention of his son, Dr Asim Raza, a medical officer at Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, has been withdrawn because the detenu has been released and admitted to a hospital for treatment of his injuries sustained in police custody. The government, has, however, denied having arrested him. In another petition, filed by Hajira Begum, challenging the arrest of her sons, Arshad Safaraz and Mansur, the government has admitted that they were arrested. In another petition filed by Shahnaz Begum, comments have been filed denying the arrest of Syed Mujib, Mohammad Adnan, Mohammad Salman and Mohammad Kamran. In yet another petition filed by Mohammad Jamil, the government has admitted the arrest of his son, Babar Jamali, on specific charges on Oct 27. The court has fixed the next date of hearing on Nov 18. REFERENCE: Aamirullah made no confessional statement: Advocate General Daily DAWN, Karachi http://www.karachipage.com/nawaz_f.htm
