May 12 tragedy: Lawyers boycott court proceedings throughout Sindh
KARACHI (92 News) – Legal fraternity boycotted court proceedings throughout Sindh on Tuesday against the May 12 tragedy.
As per reports, the lawyers wore black ribbons on their arms while they demanded of the Chief Justice of Pakistan Nasirul Mulk to take suo motu notice of lawyers killing on May 12, 2007. “If a judicial commission can be formed to investigate rigging,” said the lawyers, “why can’t one be set up to investigate the May 12 tragedy?”
They regretted that not a single killer involved in carnage of May 12 has been apprehended so far.
Over 45 people were killed including lawyers and dozens wounded on May 12, 2007 when a political rally was held the day then Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry landed at Karachi airport to address the Karachi Bar Association.
