Chief justice sets up cell for redressal of grievances
LAHORE: Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar has constituted complaints’ cell at the Lahore registry of the Supreme Court to address grievances of complainants.
The CJP has set up two human rights cells for redressal of grievances of resource-less people.
In the newly-formed cell, a staff member of the SC registry would receive applications of minorities and those pertaining to human rights violations and forward the same to the chief justice after scrutiny.
Justice Nisar issued the directives when a woman from Sialkot, Sughran Bibi, said that she was not allowed to see him (the CJP) due to security protocol.
The CJP had taken notice of the hue and cry of Sughran outside the SC registry building a day earlier and asked her to come to the court on Sunday.
Sughran Bibi claimed before a two-member bench of the SC on Sunday that her only son was got killed in a fake encounter with police when she refused to hand over her home to Azam Butt and his accomplices of the area.
Later, Azam Butt got her implicated in a kidnapping for ransom case and she had to serve 10-month jail term.
She further claimed that her elder daughter was kidnapped by the accused during her imprisonment and there was no clue yet about her whereabouts.
The CJP ordered that the matter be treated as a suo motu case while directing issuance of notices to all the accused, including the police officers for appearance during next hearing in the case.
