‘Sicilian-mafia-like tactics’ to pressurise judiciary unacceptable: Imran

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has strongly condemned firing at the residence of Supreme Court judge Justice Ijazul Ahsan in Lahore’s Model Town.    

In a tweet the PTI chief said, “Strongly condemn the firing at Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan’s house. These Sicilian-mafia-like tactics to pressurise senior judiciary are unacceptable in any democracy. PTI stands firmly behind the Judiciary & Rule of Law & this is one reason behind our 29th April Minar-i-Pakistan jalsa.”

Two separate incidents of firing took place outside the apex court judge’s residence late Saturday night and Sunday morning. There were no reports of anyone receiving injuries as a result of the firing.

According to a statement issued by the apex court, Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar while taking cognizance of the firing incident visited Justice Ahsanon Sunday morning.

He directed Inspector General of Punjab Police Captain (retd) Arif Nawaz to probe the incident.
