ISLAMABAD: Around 100 Investigation Officers of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) are expected to move the Supreme Court today(Wednesday) for an independent inquiry into the alleged murder of their colleague Kamran Faisal.
The NAB officers belonging to the Bureau’s offices from the Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh and Quetta yesterday gathered at a candle light vigil to protest the death of Kamran and to demand an independent judicial probe into the incident.
“Our brother was killed and we want justice. This can happen to anyone,” said an angry officer while talking to The News. He said all the officers would go to the Supreme Court today to file a petition for an independent probe into the “murder”.
The officer, who requested to remain anonymous, said Advocate Raja Amir Abbas would file the petition in the apex court on behalf of the NAB officers.
When asked about the factors that had united them, the officer pointed out the pressures faced by young officers from their bosses. “We don’t want to work in this organisation where young officers are pressurised by corrupt seniors. This factor has united us all,” said another NAB officer. He said the countrywide pen-down strike by the officers would continue today.
The sombre ceremony, held outside late Kamran Faisal’s residence in Federal Lodges, was attended by around 100 NAB officers. They were displaying posters with enlarged pictures of the deceased.
