Islamabad- The Supreme Court of Pakistan expressed its dissatisfaction today over the slow pace of the investigation into the murder of social worker Parveen Rehman and ordered for the submission of a progress report during the next hearing of the case.

A three-judge bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice Nasirul Mulk resumed the hearing over a petition filed in relation to the murder of Orangi Pilot Project director and renowned social activist, Parveen Rehman. During the hearing Justice Gulzar Ahmed remarked that it was a high-profile case and all the accused had not been identified yet. Deputy Inspector General of the Crime Investigation Department (CID) Sultan Khawaja informed the court that all secret agencies had held a meeting over the case. He added that the Board of Revenue had yet to respond to a request sent to it. Justice Gulzar replied that time was being sought for the past six months even though all systems in the country have been computerised. He told the DIG-CID to head the probe in the right direction and added that personnel at police stations were aware of everything. The court directed for the continuation of the probe to ascertain all culprits and also sought a report over the progress in the case during the next hearing which was adjourned until December 15.
