A three-member bench comprising Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, Justice Ghulam Rabbani and Justice Khalilur Rehman Ramday expressed dissatisfaction with the report presented by the investigation officer and rejected it. Observing that proper action should have been taken against those responsible, the court adjourned the hearing till June 11.
