CJP orders Imran Ali Shah to donate Rs3 million to dams fund
KARACHI (92 News) – Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar on Saturday ordered Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf MPA Imran Ali Shah to donate Rs3 million to the Diamer-Bhasha and Mohmand Dams Fund 2018.
A bench headed by the chief justice at Supreme Court’s Karachi Registry heard a suo motu notice taken against the PTI MPA over the physical assault of a citizen in Karachi. As the hearing went under way, the chief justice asked the MPA, “What were you thinking when you thrashed the citizen? No one even beats up animals like this.”
Justice Nisar continued, “Why did you assault the citizen? You are a representative of the people. Is this how you will behave? This is an unacceptable crime and we won’t let it go.”
As Shah apologised and said he was ’embarrassed’, Justice Nisar said: “What sorry? There is no compensation for insults.”
The chief justice then wrapped up the case and ordered Shah to donate Rs3 million to the dams fund. A video of the PTI MPA assaulting a citizen had sparked outrage on social media after it went viral earlier this month.
