Sindh High court on Tuesday ordered the formation of joint investigation team to probe the May 12 riots.

A two-member bench comprising Justice Iqbal Kalhoroo and Justice KK Agha announced the ruling while hearing a petition seeking the formation of a judicial commission on the matter.

The high court has ordered the Sindh government to submit a report on the implementation of the verdict within two weeks. It also ordered re-opening of 65 cases shut under A class law, while a separate tribunal will be set up for the cases.
