The Faizabad sit-in commission held its first official meeting on Monday where it was decided to seek video record from the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority regarding the 2017 sit-in, sources said.

Former Inspector General of Police Akhtar Ali Shah chaired the meeting in Islamabad which sought all records related to the events surrounding the Faizabad sit-in and the inquiry reports, they added.

The commission has decided to summon all relevant administrative officials to the next meeting.

Tahir Alam, one of the three commissioners, was not present due to his mother’s illness, however, the commission still began working on the case.

The Faizabad sit-in commission is formed to investigate the TLP’s sit-in in 2017.

Earlier, the federal government told the Supreme Court that it had formed a fact-finding committee to investigate the Faizabad sit-in in 2017.

The Faizabad sit-in case had been taken up after lying in limbo by Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa soon after he took the oath of office. However, multiple petitioners including the Ministry of defence, the ECP, and the Intelligence Bureau had told the court that they wanted to withdraw their review petition.
