The government of Sindh has expressed a lack of confidence in the investigation of Pakistan International Airlines Crash initiated by the federal government. Minister Saeed Ghani has demanded the removal of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) and the head of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

As per details, the government of Sindh has rejected the investigation team formed by the federal government to probe the Karachi plane crash.
Saeed Ghani, while addressing a press conference with other provincial ministers, said that a dictatorship has been established within the PIA as those who raise their voices have been silenced by the administration.

Sindh Infor­mation Minister Nasir Shah said at a press conference that experts from Punjab were called without informing the Sindh government and if they were needed the provincial government could have requested by itself. He said DNA samples were being examined at the International Centre for Chemical and Biological Sciences of Karachi University and it would be completed in 10 days. He said the process of collecting DNA of the family members of the plane crash victims started quickly after the crash.

It is to be noted that 97 people were killed while two passengers survived when a Pakistan International Airlines flight coming from Lahore to Karachi crashed in the Model Colony in Malir area near Jinnah International Airport in Karachi. So far 43 of the 97 bodies have been identified, while DNA units of the left have been taken for their cross-matching with those of their family members.
