Lawyers boycott courts across Sindh over killing of Shiite judge’s son
Lawyers stayed away from courts in several towns of the province on Thursday in response to a call for boycott given by lawyers organisations to protest against Shia targeted killing of Jacobabad sessions judge’s son a day ago.
In Karachi, legal proceedings came to a halt in lower courts after the Karachi and Malir bar associations gave a call for boycott to condemn the murder of Aqib Shahani, son of district and sessions judge of Jacobabad, Khalid Hussain Shahani.
Hundreds of cases fixed for the day were adjourned and undertrial prisoners brought to the city courts and district courts in Malir were sent back without being produced in courts.
SHC takes notice: Chief Justice of Sindh High Court Justice Maqbool Baqar has taken notice of the murder of Jacobabad judge’s son and ordered IGP and SSP of Hyderabad to depute an honest officer not below the rank of DSP to conduct the probe into the murder, said SHC registrar Fahim Ahmed Siddiqui, PPI adds.
He directed the SSP to personally monitor the probe and submit him a report within two days and directed police officials to provide adequate security to all judicial officers and their families including the bereaved family and submit report in this regard.
