IHC dismisses Cynthia's petition against lower court order
ISLAMABAD-Islamabad High Court (IHC) Monday dismissed the petition challenging the lower court order for registering a first information report (FIR) against American citizen Cynthia D Ritchie after conducting an inquiry regarding her controversial remarks against former prime minister Benazir Bhutto.
At the outset of hearing, the chief justice said the lower court had only ordered Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to conduct inquiry into the matter rather to register an FIR.
The lawyer said the petitioner had challenged decision of the lower court.
To this, the bench said it could not interfere into the inquiry of any institution. The court said it would not view the merits of the case, adding the lower court had not ordered to register an FIR against Cynthia.
After this, the court reserved its judgment and later on dismissed the case.
