As enquiry against former Deputy Commissioner Ch Mohammad Ali, former IG Islamabad Marwat Ali Shah and former SSP Islamabad Dr Naeem has not been completed and neither they are at fault or have been proven guilty therefore case against them should be dismissed and they be reinstated.

The Supreme Court referring the case of the suspended officers to the federal government has directed the Establishment Division to review the case according to the law and if the officers in question are found guilty than departmental action be taken against them.

Attorney general of Pakistan Malik Qayyum was also present during the hearing of the case.
