April 15, 2018

LAHORE: Unknown armed persons opened fire at the residence of Justice Ijazul Ahsan in Lahore’s Model Town in two separate incidents on Sunday.

However, no casualties were reported in the attacks. Following the attacks, Justice Supreme Court of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar visited the residence of Justice Ahsan.

Justice Ahsan has been part of a number of high-profile cases, including the Panamagate case that led to Nawaz Sharif’s disqualification.

The chief justice is said to be overseeing the situation himself. Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif took notice of the incident as well and ordered immediate arrests of the attackers. He also asked the Punjab inspector general (IG) to submit a report on the incident.

The personal secretary to Sharif, who visited the Supreme Cout’s residence to meet him, was refused a meeting by the SC administration.
