The family members were living in a farm which they had taken on lease for cultivation. The police had said on August 10 last year that the post-mortem had revealed death due to ingestion of poisonous substance.
The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Thursday disposed of the case of the death of 11 Pakistani Hindus in Rajasthan last year. The court ended the case after the federal government assured that the matter would be taken up with the Indian government. 11 members of a Pakistani Hindu migrant family were found dead in a field in Rajasthan’s Jodhpur district on August 9 last year.
Relatives of the victims in Pakistan filed a petition in the Supreme Court requesting the court to order the federal government to vigorously take up the matter with India to find out the real cause of death. When the Pakistani government assured that it would hand over the responsibility of investigating the matter with India to the State Department, the court accepted the matter as disposed of.
11 died due to poison
The top court also said that it would not like to interfere or give directions in the foreign affairs of the two countries. Earlier, the counsel for the petitioners, Syed Kalb-e-Hasan had said that the matter was very serious and the apex court should formally issue notice to the federal government. He also said that the Ministry of External Affairs is taking action in this matter only for the sake of misinformation.
The family came to India on a long-term visa in 2015 from Pakistan’s Sindh province. The family members were living in a farm which they had taken on lease for cultivation. The police had said on August 10 last year that the post-mortem had revealed the death due to ingestion of poisonous substance and it was a case of possible mass suicide.
