LHC Chief Justice Takes Suo motu of Darbar Attacks
Lahore High Court Chief Justice Khwaja Muhammad Sharif on Friday took suo motu notice of the suicide attacks on the shrine of Hazrat Data Gunj Bakhsh, summoning the CCPO for July 5.
The chief justice said it was important to probe whether or not the incident took place because of some security lapse, and what steps could be taken to avoid any such future incident.
“Therefore, by taking cognizance under article 199(i)(c) of constitution, I direct Lahore CCPO Aslam Tareen to appear before the court,” the CJ said in the order.
The advocate general was also directed to ensure the compliance of the court order and assist the court in the matter.
Earlier, Justice Sharif visited the shrine and condemned the incident, saying that the people who had attacked such a holy place could be neither Muslims nor Pakistani. The terrorists belonged to no religion, and they had no relation with humanity, he added.
