Sindh govt, excise dept to submit replies by May 11
The Sindh High Court wants to know what conditions wine shops have to meet to get a licence to sell liquor.
The Excise director said that they are allowed to open wine shops in non-Muslim neighbourhoods. The court was hearing a petition against licences given to liquor shops.
The court has asked the Sindh government and excise department, among others, to submit their replies in the case by May 11.
A reply has also been summoned from the owner of a wine shop.
Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar said that the respondents should present details of other similar cases heard by higher courts.
