Prosecutors in Safoora Carnage Quit Due To Lack Of Security and Financial Incentives
Two public prosecutors, assigned by the government to represent the state in the Safoora Goth bus carnage, resigned from their jobs due to lack of security and appropriate financial incentives. According to the prosecutors, they had communicated their concerns to the provincial home department seeking Rangers’ protection, a safe accommodation during the trial and release of their professional fee in advance. They also laid emphasis on the responsibility of the government to ensure their safety and well being.
It is pertinent to mention here that the incident took place in May this year where 45 people belonging to the Ismaili community were massacred after gunmen boarded their bus in Safoora Goth.
The provincial Sindh government had, in May, appointed Mubashir Mirza and Mohammad Khan Burdo as special public prosecutors in the case.
They also said that since the accused belonged to the dangerous organizations like Daesh, the need to provide appropriate security is imperative.
The bail applications of the suspects Sultan and Sajid are also fixed for hearing on Oct 22.
