The IG Sindh, once again, submitted unconditional apology to the court. In the earlier proceedings, Jamali had submitted unconditional apology, which was rejected.
The contempt proceedings were initiated against IG Jamali, Karachi AIG Ghulam Qadir Thebo, West DIG Feroze Shah, City SSP Fida Hussain Janwari, Saddar SP Zeeshan Shafiq Siddiqui, SSU incharge Major (retd) Saleem, Legal AIG Faisal Bashir Memon, former SP Raees Abdul Ghani, West Headquarters SP Tahir Noorani, South DIG Dr Jamil Ahmed and SI Jahangir Mahar.
The case against the IG and other officers was filed by former home minister Zulfiqar Mirza against the officers involved in besieging the court’s building and torturing his supporters and the media persons on May 23.
That day, masked and armed policemen had laid a siege around the SHC. The cops had brutally beaten up the guards providing security to Mirza and media persons at the main gate of the SHC building.

The policemen had also smashed several parked vehicles and snatched cameras from journalists.
The court had then asked the chief secretary to inform the SHC whether any actions were taken against the IG and other police officials.
