Sindh government is hiding the original report, says a federal minister
Ali Zaidi, senior leader of the ruling party and a federal minister, has accused the Sindh government of hiding the original Joint Investigation Team’s (JIT) report against Uzair Baloch, a notorious gangster who has confessed to having killed 198 persons. He demands the Supreme Court to take suo-moto notice on this.

Ali Zaidi held a press conference along with Shibli Faraz, Federal Minister for Information, on the recently-released JIT report on Lyari gangster Uzair Baloch.
The minister claimed that the “original” report was 43 pages long while the one released by the Sindh government was based on 35 pages. “Today, I am presenting the report in front of you that contains signatures on every page,” said Zaidi. “Special Branch, CID, ISI, MI, IB and Pakistan Rangers’ [officials] signatures are present in this report,” he added.
He said that the “original” report also contained the names of Dr Zulfikar Mirza, Faryal Talpur, Abdul Qadir Patel, Nisar Morai, Yousuf Baloch and Sharjeel Inam Memon, which have not been mentioned in the report released on Monday.
“Orders to kill people came directly from PPP leaders”
Baloch reportedly claimed that he was in direct contact with the PPP leadership and that he had carried out targeted killings in the city on the orders of PPP leaders. Some of these orders, he claimed, came directly from the PPP co-chairman, former Sindh home minister Zulfiqar Mirza, incumbent Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Memon and even PPP leader Owais Muzaffar Tappi.
They claim Faryal Talpur only met Uzair Baloch once at a dinner?
Btw that dinner was hosted on the same day PPP took oath of office in Sindh! Ofcourse when one takes oath of office, one goes straight to his/her biggest supporters house to celebrate 😊 pic.twitter.com/r67oS6texC

It is to be seen whether the Supreme Court of Pakistan takes a suo moto notice or the federal government files a reference to determine which report is the genuine. Political disputes between and among political parties aside, the families who have lost their loved ones during the reign of terror led by Uzair Baloch have a legitimate right to know as to why were they killed and by whom. The matter becomes more important as terrifying details came on the surface as reveals Habib Jan Baloch.
