CJP Khosa takes up Asad Munir's suicide case in his first suo moto notice
The top judge has summoned the record of references against Munir from Chairman National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal.
Munir, a former member of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) and former intelligence operative, committed suicide last Friday and left a note addressed to the chief justice of Pakistan.
In his suicide note, the analyst gave details of the allegations levelled against him and the way he was treated by “incompetent NAB officers”.

ISLAMABAD - Former member state Capital Development Authority (CDA), Brigadier (retd) Asad Munir committed suicide on ...
In the note, widely shared on social media, Munir wrote that he was giving his life in the hope that the top judge of the country would bring positive changes in the system where incompetent people are playing with the life and honor of citizen in the name of accountability.
It was a sad day for the family. Rest in peace Asad Bhai.— Khalid Munir (@Khalid_Munir) March 15, 2019
The letter is authentic. Typed by him. On top in his own hand writing he had instructed how the letter should be handled.
Will miss you Asad till I live. Lost a brother and a friend.#AsadMunir
Although the suicide note was first disputed by political analysts, his brother later confirmed its authenticity, indirectly validating that Asad Munir took his own life.
The chief justice had not taken any suo moto notice ever since assuming office after the retirement of Mian Saqib Nisar on January 17th, however, the demands for such intervention rose to a crescendo after the death of Asad Munir.
NAB had accused Munir of misusing his authority and restoring a plot in F-11 area in Islamabad.
