Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah lands in big trouble
*LAHORE: The Punjab Bar Council has given a 24-hour ultimatum to provincial government to register case against Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah and other for the authorities’ alleged torture of lawyers in Lahore during PTI’s Azadi March. *
Addressing a press conference in Lahore, Jaffer Tayyar – Vice-Chairman of Punjab Bar Council – said that a case should be registered against Rana Sanaullah, Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Punjab and others following the orders of Sessions Court.
He further said that a contempt of court petition will be filed if the government failed to register case against those responsible for authorities’ alleged torture of lawyers.
Jaffer Tayyar strongly condemned the alleged torture of lawyers during PTI’s Azadi March link, terming it a shameful act.
Taking over the presser, Irfan Saeed – Chairman of Punjab Bar Executive Committee – demanded that the cases registered against the lawyers should be disposed off immediately. ” If lawyers continue to be subjected to such torture, society cannot survive,” he added.
A day earlier, a Lahore district and sessions court ordered link the registration of cases against Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah and others against police torture of PTI workers during party’s recently held ‘Azadi March’.
