ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) - The investigation into the series of suspicious letters sent to judges of the Supreme Court (SC), Islamabad High Court (IHC), and Lahore High Court (LHC) has taken a significant leap forward. 

Forensic analysis of the handwriting on the letters has uncovered startling revelations. 

The Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) has received the forensic report, indicating that the handwriting on various letters sent to judges across the courts belongs to the same individual. 

Sources close to the investigation have disclosed that the letters bearing the names Resham, Reshma, and Gulshad were all authored by this single person, pointing to a unified threat.
