IHC summons IGP over MOP chairman arrest

ISLAMABAD (APP): The Islamabad High Court Wednesday summoned the Inspector General of Police and the Station House Officer (SHO) Secretariat in person for allegedly defying court orders in the controversial banners case.

A single judge bench of Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani also directed respondents to produce the detained chairman of the Move on Pakistan (MOP) Mohammad Kamran before the court at 11 am.

The direction came in a plea stating that the respondents arrested the petitioner on July 20, despite the fact he was granted protective bail by the IHC.

Sardar Taimoor Aslam, counsel for the petitioner pleaded that the banners were never displayed to support the idea of martial law instead they were put up urging the army chief to take extension in his service.

Subsequently the court while directing the IGP, SHO to appear in person adjourned the case till July 21.
