Case would be lodged against Col Joseph in USA.

(Dunya News) – US Defense and Air Attaché Colonel Emanual Joseph—who crushed a youth to death in Islamabad—has on Monday left Pakistan for United States, reported Dunya News.

Sources privy to development stated that police record had been provided to US authorities to launch legal proceedings against him in America.

Earlier, Islamabad High Court (IHC) had directed Pakistani authorities to remove Emanual Joseph name from Exit Control List (ECL) as the Attaché enjoyed complete diplomatic immunity.

Colonel Joseph Emanuel Hall, Defence and Air attache at the US Embassy in Pakistan had ran down three persons in Daman-e-Koh, north of Islamabad, ratcheting up the ongoing visa/diplomatic rift between the two countries.

He was reportedly sloshed while driving the white Land Cruiser that hit three motorcyclists at a traffic signal.

One of the riders was dead, while the other two were critically wounded, who were taken to the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS).
