LHC directs police to arrest Multan bar president by Sept 8

LAHORE, AUG 22 (DNA) – The Lahore High Court (LHC) has on Tuesday directed the police to arrest High Court Bar Association Multan President Sher Zaman by September 8 while hearing the contempt of court case against him.

The larger bench, headed by LHC Chief Justice Mansoor Ali Shah, gave this order when Multan regional police officer (RPO) submitted a report in the court which stated that several raids were conducted to arrest Sher Zaman but he could not be detained.

Secretary Qaiser Abbas, the other person who misbehaved with judges was presented before LHC.

On the other hand, lawyers are observing a countrywide strike against the verdict of Lahore High Court to arrest Sher Zaman Qureshi and Qaisar Abbas over misconduct with the judges.

Lawyers from cities including Karachi, Lahore, Faisalabad, Gujranwala, Rawalpindi, Peshawar and other will stage protests and boycott the court proceedings in their respective cities.

The conflict on Monday (yesterday) started when a larger bench of LHC ordered arrest of Sher Zaman Qureshi and Qaisar Abbas. Lawyers created a ruckus in reaction and even attempted to enter LHC Chief Justice’s chamber.

They not only broke the main entrance gate but also smashed the walk through gate which was set for security reasons, torturing a policeman on duty and blocking the road for traffic later on. However; Anti-Riot Force (ARF) forced them out of the court premises by using water cannons and tear gas.
