Forensic Report

On Thursday, a forensic report confirmed that the white powder in the threatening letters delivered to the top Pakistani judges contained arsenic.

Unknown people sent letters to all eight judges of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Tuesday in sealed white envelopes. Names of the judges and the address of the IHC were written on the envelopes. The IHC staff who opened the envelopes found a suspicious powder inside.
