LAHORE - A forensic report of the firing incident at Justice Ijazul Ahsan’s residence has revealed that the judge’s residence was not the target of the firing, it emerged on Tuesday.

On April 15, two separate firing incidents were reported at the Lahore residence of Supreme Court judge Justice Ijazul Ahsan.

According to reports, the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing the incident received the forensic report on Tuesday, which said two bullets landed in the house following aerial firing. The bullets found at Justice Ahsan’s house were fired using a 9mm pistol, forensic sources said, adding that a 9mm pistol cannot effectively target at a 50m-range.
