Lahore, Apr 25: The Lahore High Court (LHC) enquiry tribunal formed to investigate the terror attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team has revealed in its final report that it was the 'criminal negligence' of the security officials that was responsible for the 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.

The Daily Times reported that the tribunal report has been sent to the chief minister, the principal secretary to the Punjab governor, the interior secretary, the LHC registrar, the home secretary and the Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ijaz Butt for further action.
