Lahore, Apr.25 (ANI): The Lahore High Court (LHC) enquiry tribunal formed to investigate the terror attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team, has in its final report blamed security officials ‘criminal negligence’ as responsible for the audacious strike.

The 450-page tribunal report has recommended that stern action should be taken against several top police officials who were given the responsibility to provide a fool-proof security cover to the visiting team.

The report stated that Civil Lines Superintendent of Police (SP) Rai Ijaz, SP M Ali Naikokar, Model Town SP Raja Abid, and Security SP Ahsan Younis should be charged for dereliction of duty.
