ISLAMABAD: Attorney General Aslam Butt informed the Supreme Court on Thursday that a First Information Report (FIR) could be filed against a currently serving army official according to Pakistan Army regulations. He said this in the hearing of the Malakand missing persons case, which concerns the disappearance of 35 people from an internment centre in the region, DawnNews reported.
Butt submitted his reply in the apex court regarding FIRs against serving armed forces personnel.
The three-member bench, headed by Justice Jawwad Khawaja, remarked that there was no doubt that an FIR could be registered against a serving army man but the question was whether the case would be heard in an army court or a civilian court.
Justice Gulzar remarked that there should be rules and regulations regarding handing over of army personnel to military authorities from the magistrate.
Justice Khawaja said that if the magistrate hands over a detained army personnel to military authorities, he should provide reasons for such a decision.
