LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) is hearing set of petitions regarding Lahore’s Model Town incident as judgment in this regard is also expected today, SAMAA reported Tuesday.

The LHC in its today’s proceeding, declared non-maintainable a petition seeking implementation of sessions court’s orders regarding registration of FIR against 21 people, including PM Nawaz Sharif and his brother Shahbaz Sharif over Lahore’s Model Town incident

In its ruling the LHC said that the application is non-maintainable and could not be taken up on the grounds that the applicant is not an aggrieved party himself.

In his application, the petitioner said that FIR is not being lodged despite implementation of Sessions Court’s Aug 16 order in which it directed police to frame murder charges against Sharif brothers and 19 others over violence.

The Model Town clash between police and workers of Dr. Tahirul Qadri’s Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) left at least 14 of Qadri’s supporters dead in June.

The case of the incident was registered on the complaint of administration of Dr. Qadri’s Minhaj ul Quran (MuQ), with 21 people, including PM and CM Punjab nominated as accused.

Meanwhile, the court took up a petition of three federal ministers challenging orders of registration of case against Sharif brothers as ‘unconstitutional’.

The court also called in Dr. Arif, the head of a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing into the Model Town incident. The JIT head turned up before the bench with all relevant documents and apprised the court of committee’s findings.
Attorney General Punjab also appeared in the court and gave his arguments.

After conclusion of the contention, the LHC is likely to deliver its verdict in the case. – SAMAA
