Former ISI boss files plea for human rights protection

The petition was filed under Article 184(3) of the Constitution. It appeals to the court to order an inquiry into the attack, compensation for the martyred soldier’s family and an end to military operations in the tribal areas. Gul’s lawyer Muhammad Ikram Chaudhry requested the court to order the government to end the agreements signed with the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) and the US that were hindering the protection of human rights. The Federation of Pakistan, the ministries of interior, foreign affairs and defence, the chief of army staff, and the NWFP governor have been made respondents in the petition. SC sources told Daily Times that the petition was being considered for hearing.
