ISLAMABAD - The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Wednesday turned down a petition to request the Indian President, Prime Minister and Governor of Rajasthan State to remit the sentence, release and repatriate a Pakistani, detained in Ajmer jail, to the country. Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry heading a three-member bench comprised Justice Tariq Pervaiz and Justice Amir Hani Muslim said: They dont have jurisdiction. The Chief Justice said, We are deciding the question of fundamental rights within our own jurisdiction. The CJP asked the petitioners counsel if this court could pass an order which was applicable on Indian Supreme Court. Iqbal Haider, appearing on behalf of Shoa Jawaid, petitioner and daughter of a Pakistani citizen Saiyyad Muhammad Khaleel Chishty, detained in Indian prison, stated that Supreme Court of India in a similar manner had requested the President of Pakistan for the release of an Indian national Gopal Dass, who was released in the pursuance of the request. He said, Indian SC had rightly held that though they have no territorial jurisdiction to issue direction to any authority in Pakistan, but it does not prevent them from making a request to the Pakistani authorities to consider the appeal of Gopal Dass for releasing him on humanitarian grounds by remitting the remaining sentence. Sher Bahadur, Legal Advisor Ministry of Foreign Affairs, informed the court that Pakistani High Commission in New Delhi was committed to pursuing the matter of Saiyyad Muhammad Khaleel Chishty with the Indian authorities for remission of his sentence on humanitarian grounds and his early repatriation to the country, because of his age and deteriorating health condition. Chisty, a Ph.D. from Edinburgh University, has been languishing in the Central Prison of District Ajmer, India, for the last 19 years. In 1992 he went to India to visit his ailing mother. During his stay with his brother in Ajmer, he was falsely implicated in a murder case registered at Gonj Police Station, Ajmer under Sections 302/34, 324/34 of Indian Penal Code (IPC). He was released on bail but his movement was confined to District Ajmer and has not been allowed to return Pakistan since 1992. Chishtys murder case remained pending for an unreasonably and unjustly long period for about 19 years. But in December 2010 Mr. Chishty was convicted under Section 302 of IPC and sentenced for life imprisonment by Court of Special Judge District Ajmer India. The bench while turning down the petitioners request disposed of the matter.
