Journalist’s murder: CJP orders IGP to arrest accused within four days
LAHORE (92 News) – Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar has given four days to Punjab IGP Arif Nawaz to arrest the killers of Sialkot-based journalist Zeeshan Butt.
During the hearing on Saturday, IGP Punjab requested the court to grant them a week to arrest the accused. However, the chief justice rejected the request, ordering the police official to arrest the accused at the earliest and launch enquiry against him under the anti-terrorism act.
While expressing anger over failure of authorities to arrest the accused, the CJP asked if he belonged to any political party. To this, the IGP said that the accused belonged to Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz.
The CJP also asked if the accused was backed or supported by anyone in the crime, but Arif said it was not the case. When asked if the accused’s name has been on the Exit Control List, the IGP replied in the affirmative.
The CJP further expressed concern over the issue, saying he was to hear cases at the Supreme Court’s Karachi registry next week but would instead be at the Lahore registry to hear the murder case.
