JIT Investigations have kicked off in Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan residence fire case

LAHORE: Investigations have kicked off in the firing on Supreme Court Justice Ijazul Ahsan's residence in Lahore on Sunday.

Members of the joint investigation team (JIT), constituted to probe into the incident, visited the site on Monday. They, however, could not reach a conclusion.

The CCTV footage of the vicinity could also not provide any trace of culprits.

JIT has widened scope of its investigation. The investigators have gathered details of marriage halls located close to the Justice Ahsan's residence.

Details of past firing cases and individuals possessing firearms in the locality have also been gathered, sources said.

Officials have been recording statements of residents while the process of collecting details of security guards in the neighbourhood is also underway, sources added.

Earlier in the day, Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar said they have been reviewing the matter, saying that no headway has been made in the case so far.

During the hearing of a case relating to football federation, the chief justice thanked the Supreme Court Bar Association and other lawyers' bodies for expressing solidarity after the incident.

Two separate firing incidents were reported at the Lahore residence of Justice Ijazul Ahsan on Sunday, after which the Punjab government formed the JIT to probe into the matter.
