LHC issued Non Bailable arrest warrants of IGP Islamabad
The Lahore High Court has taken a significant step by issuing non-bailable warrants against the Inspector General of Islamabad, who failed to appear in court to provide a response regarding the arrest of Pervaiz Elahi. This development stems from a petition submitted to the court, highlighting a perplexing situation where a judicial magistrate had ordered the release of the former prime minister, yet he remained in detention. The petitioner implored the court to take action, demanding the recovery of Elahi and his subsequent release.
In response to this pressing matter, the Lahore High Court didn't hesitate to escalate the situation further. They issued non-bailable warrants against the Inspector General for his failure to present Pervaiz Elahi in court, indicating the seriousness of the situation. Additionally, bailable warrants were also issued for Islamabad's district commissioner.
Furthermore, a contempt notice was served to Islamabad's SSP for their failure to execute the earlier bailable warrants meant for the Inspector General, intensifying the legal proceedings surrounding this case.
This turn of events showcases the court's determination to ensure justice and uphold the rule of law, even when it involves high-ranking officials. The issuance of non-bailable warrants serves as a clear message that accountability and adherence to legal procedures will be rigorously pursued, regardless of one's position in the government or law enforcement
