ISLAMABAD – Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar on Saturday has threatened to resign.
His threat came as lawyers staged protest during the hearing of sub-inspector torture case.
According to details, Lahore Bar secretary Sohail Arshad pleaded before the Supreme Court (SC) to dispose of FIR lodged against the lawyer as he did not assault the policemen.
The top judge rejected the request and said that he will tender resignation if he fails to ensure justice. He also reprimanded the lawyers for chanting slogans in the courtroom.
Meanwhile, the Lahore Bar secretary said that they will continue to protest outside the court if the CJP won’t dismiss FIR against the fellow lawyer.
