The judicial commission assigned to investigate the raid by U.S. Navy SEALs in Abbottabad which killed Al-Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden, has finally completed its work.

According to The Express Tribune, the commission, which was asked by the government to submit its report before October 12, will make the submission after one of its members - Abbas Khan - returns from a trip abroad.

The Law and Justice Division had issued a notification according to which the commission was told to complete the inquiry and submit its report to the Federal Government within thirty days commencing from September 12.

On May 2, 2011, U.S. commandos had raided a compound in the garrison town of Abbottabad to capture the Osama who had been living there for more than five years.

The government subsequently formed a five-member judicial commission to probe the presence of Osama so close to Pakistan's premier military training facility and the circumstances leading to his death in the raid. (ANI)
