Why SC Justice Ejaz ul Ahsan has been targeted twice in 12 hours?
LAHORE – The residence of Supreme Court judge Justice Ejaz ul Ahsan was fired at twice in 12 hours.
In the firing incidents, no human casualties have been reported so far.
After hearing about the incident, the Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar reached Justice Ejaz ul Ahsan’s residence this morning and condemned the incident.
One incident occurred at night while the other in the morning of Sunday.
The Chief Justice of Pakistan summoned Inspector General of Punjab in this connection and vowed to monitor the situation himself.
Justice Ahsan was part of the five-member bench that heard the high-profile Panamagate case last year that led to the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif, the then prime minister. He has been targeted because he is the monitoring judge of the NAB cases against Sharif family.
Lahore High Court Bar Association and Supreme Court condemned the incident and demanded the immediate apprehension of culprits.
