The court also ordered Sheikh Rashid Shafique to remain in his limits.
Justice Azmat Saeed remarked that the court would order someone else if the Punjab government failed in protecting Girls Guide. “It is better that the matter should not go to such extent. The court knows how to implement its order,” he remarked.
Girls Guide’s counsel Ayesha Hamid told court that the district administration was informed about the court orders.
She said that Sheikh Rasheed had told the DC on phone that he does not care for the court orders. She added that the wall was demolished in the presence of Rashid Shafiq.
