Islamabad High Court (IHC) ordered Interior Ministry and Ministery of Foreign Affairs to contact the bereaved family of prominent journalist and TV host Arshad Sharif, who was shot dead in Kenya, Nairobi.
The court issued directives as a plea was filed, urging senior court of the Islamabad Capital Territory to form a commission to probe the circumstances under which the Pakistani journalist left his home country.

This is what the Islamabad High Court ordered on Monday while hearing the petition of barrister Shoaib Razzaq pertaining to the journalist’s death.
