Despite the fact that months of inquiry and thousands of pages printed as the report of Presidential Commission of Inquiry (PCoI) that probed the 2019 Easter Sunday Attacks, the CID and TID are called again for investigations.
Six-member Ministerial Committee appointed to study the report of the has given instructions to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and Terrorism Investigation Division (TID) to conduct further investigations.
The PCoI was said to be the high level body to find perpetrators of the suicide attacks and to punish them immediately. The report was finally released as the outcome of PCoI which has gulped an approximate sum of Rs 650 million out of public funds.
However after the report was made public it was revealed that PCoI report has not decided or identified any perpetrators of the attack and no conclusion with regard to the error the security apparatus had that failed to take any action to prevent the attack. It did not even mention anything about the responsible politicians or bureaucracy who were in charge of the police and shirked their duties to prevent those multiple terror attacks on April 21, 2019 on Easter Sunday.
However, having appointed to take decisions based on the report of PCoI, the Ministerial Committee has given its recommendations regarding so many references made in the PCoI and the Sectoral Oversight Committee on National Security.
Ultimately, the Police divisions who are to investigate are to be ordered to carry on and find the culprits, the whole sum of public funds, the time and labor of PCoI, the state officers who had to provide fullest support as priority have been wasted in vain.
