Islamabad, Dec. 19 (ANI): Former cricketer and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has called for a judicial inquiry into civilian deaths caused by US drones in Pakistan’s tribal areas.

Khan issued a statement demanding that a judicial inquiry panel, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Chaudhry, should be formed to probe the drone conspiracy, the Daily Times reports.

He emphasised that the PPP-led government should inform the public of the truth.

Criticising Washington and Islamabad over the drone attacks in FATA, Imran said such strikes were against the country’s sovereignty.
