The Pakistan government has approached the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) to appoint experts for inquiry into the Airblue plane crash following the Peshawar court expressing dissatisfaction over the previous inquiry report.

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) had sent a letter to ICAO.A senior law officer of CAA, Ubaidur Rehman Abbasi, informed the bench that they were awaiting outcome of their request made to ICAO.

The ministry of defense had last month issued a notification for appointing a board of accident inquiry into Airblue flight accident, which crashed on July 28, 2010, at Islamabad leaving 152 persons dead. The notification said that the board should exercise powers, conferred o it under the Civil Aviation Rules 1994, and furnish report to the ministry of defense within 30 days.
