Lahore High Court constitutes a committee to resolve the dispute between lawyers and doctors in case of an attack on Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC).
A two-member bench of the High Court heard the petition of the lawyers arrested in connection with the attack on a heart hospital in Lahore.
IG Punjab, CCPO Lahore, Home Secretary appeared in Lahore court.
IG Punjab Police took the stand in the court that we were acting in accordance with the law and were fulfilling the inquiry parameters.
Justice Mazhar Ali Akbar Naqvi asked the IG why the lawyers were presented with masks on the faces, is there any identity parade? The people standing here were not present at the rally.
He added that the lawyers who stood before us in the court came and apologized. The apologists were not treated well.
The IG replied that the people whose faces were masked are not in the CCTV footage, on which Justice Mazhar remarks that identity parading is not necessary when they caught on occasion.
Later, a two-member bench of the Lahore High Court formed a committee to resolve the lawyers and doctors dispute, which would include four lawyer leaders and four doctors’ representatives.
It may be recalled that a few days ago, at the heart hospital in Lahore, lawyers had attacked and vandalized and 3 patients died during the riot.
The police had named 250 people while acting against the lawyers, while 57 were also arrested.
Prosecutors have been protesting against these police actions across the country for the past seven days and boycott the judicial process.
