The top judge doesn’t like the system of cases being delayed because people are granted bail multiple times. He wants matters relating to bail to be resolved immediately. 

A two-member bench comprising Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa and Justice Faisal Arab heard various petitions for bail at the Supreme Court’s Karachi Registry on Friday.

Two men withdrew their petition for pre-arrest bail after the court told them to surrender or let the court make a decision for them. The petitioners, identified as Rustam and Qalandar Bux, have been named in a firing case. Seven people were injured after the two men allegedly opened fire on them in 2015.

Others named in the case have been declared innocent. “We are not persuaded to grant them bail before arrest,” said Justice Khosa.

“The high court says that your clients were distinguishable. The medical report confirms that the two men were holding firearms while the others were holding a sharp-edged instrument,” the chief justice said.

The case has been pending for the past four years, he remarked. “Once your clients are arrested, only then will the case move forward.”

In another bail hearing, the top judge remarked that the courts will only make decisions on matters pertaining to bail during bail pleas. “It can be either in favour or against the client,” he remarked.
