Islamabad High Court Chief Justice Aamer Farooq has held Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf responsible for whatever is happening in Lahore.
Hearing the objections raised on PTI’s plea challenging PTI Chairman Imran Khan’s non-bailable arrest warrants in the Toshakhana case on Wednesday, the CJ remarked “This court gave relief to PTI, still whatever is happening Lahore is regrettable. This court has shown an honourable way which was not followed.”
The CJ’s remarks came after PTI lawyer Khawaja Haris drew his attention towards the violent clashes between police and party workers in Lahore.
The CJ further said “You have not acted on the court order; we will see the outcome of the Lahore situation.”
About objections raised by the Registrar’s Office on the PTI plea, the CJ said he was removing two objections on the petition, but the remaining objections will be sorted out by the PTI legal team itself.
The IHC CJ gave three days to Imran Khan’s legal team to remove remaining objections on the petition. “I am giving you three days’ time, but this does also not mean that I will hear you after three days. I will be here, your remove the objections,” he added.
When the CJ told Khawaja Haris and Ali Bukhari that they were looking worried, Imran Khan’s lawyers responded “The whole country is worried.”
