In a media briefing in Cairo, US Secretary of StateClinton said that United States was not involved in any deal with the families of the two Pakistani citizens who were killed by CIA contractor Raymond Davis and also denied that their government have paid blood-money for the release of American citizen, Pakistan’s media reported Wednesday.
A US State Department spokesman told that Raymond was freed by a Pakistani court and he is now at a US airbase in Afghanistan, he also criticized Pakistan for not accepting his diplomatic Immunity.
On Wednesday, a Pakistani court set free CIA contractor Raymond Davis, who killed two Pakistanis on a busy road in Lahore in January 2011.
American citizen claimed he killed two Pakistani citizens in self-defence to fend off an armed robbery.
Now the question is , If United States did not pay the blood-money in Raymond Davis case then who did?
Sources told that the families of the murdered men, Fahim and Faizan, accepted the blood money of 2.34 million dollars (equal to Rs200 million) while, four US visas were also part of the deal.
The most surprising thing is,it’s all happened in a sudden , Raymond Davis was freed by a local court after paying blood-money and taken to airport where a plane was waiting for him and in minutes he was out of Pakistan.
In Pakistan, media reports suggests that provincial government of Punjab, Federal authorities or security agencies are suspected to involve in the deal and paying blood-money.
When local media tried to know the details, why the families of victims suddenly agreed for a deal, there was no one available to answer it.
The families of the victims disappeared and their neighbours told that they have gone somewhere few days ago and we don’t know where are they now. Their cell phones were also switched off.
While, the Judge,Yousuf Ojla, who conducted hearing of US national Raymond Davis in a double murder case, has gone on leave.
The Davis case had sparked protests in Pakistan, and strained relations between Pakistan and US.
