Sindh govt forms commission to probe murders of MQM activists

KARACHI: The Sindh government on Friday formed a one-member judicial commission to investigate the murders of Muttahida Qaumi Movement activists Suhail Ahmed and Faraz Alam.

According to a spokesman for Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah, the commission will be headed by Justice (retd) Ghulam Sarwar.

The commission has been tasked to investigate the murders and submit its report within 10 days.
