LHC gives police until Sept 8 to produce lawyer in contempt case: The Lahore High Court (LHC) has directed police to arrest and produce in court a lawyers’ association leader by September 8.
The order was given by a larger bench headed by LHC Chief Justice Mansoor Ali Shah on Tuesday which was hearing a contempt of court case against Sher Zaman Qureshi, head of the bar association of LHC Multan bench, and another lawyer Qaiser Abbas Kazmi.
During the hearing, Multan regional police officer submitted a progress report following the court’s Monday’s order to arrest and produce Qureshi in court today.
The police official said several raids have been conducted in Multan, Qureshi’s hometown, but he is yet to be traced. Following this, the court gave the police until September 8 to ensure Qureshi’s presence in court.
Sources said the police have arrested Qureshi’s brother and nephew in a bid to pressure him to give himself up.
Meanwhile, lawyers across the country are observing a strike today against Monday’s ‘police brutality’ and to press the LHC to take back Qureshi’s arrest orders.
Protests are under way in Multan and other areas while a major rally is planned by the Karachi Bar Council at MA Jinnah Road around noon.
Police have increased security at the LHC building and blocked entrances to it by placing containers.
