I found it surprising that Pak CAA suddenly woke up and decided to investigate this issue (rightly so as any regulator would) however with multiple disasters and incidents worse than this on Pakistani soil, these cowboys are nowhere to be found.

Every major/minor aircraft incident/accident in Pakistan is investigated by Pakistan CAA and Aircraft Accident Investigation Board (AAIB) teams.

Pakistan CAA actually has higher effective implementation score for "Aircraft Investigation" category compared to global average in International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Universal Safety Oversight Audit Programme (USOAP).

Air Traffic Control (ATC) communication.

After landing, the pilot requested for the inspection of engine number 2 (right engine) by Pakistan CAA firefighters. After completion of engine inspection with no evidence of oil spillage found by firefighters, the aircraft vacated runway and taxied towards the allocated parking stand.
