SC Constitutes Larger Bench for New JIT in Model Town Case


On Monday, the Supreme Court formed a larger bench for the formation of Joint Investigation Team (JIT), to probe the Model town case.

A two-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar heard a petition at the Supreme Court’s Lahore Registry seeking the formation of a new JIT to probe the case.

On Saturday, the SC while hearing the case in the Lahore Registry, had issued notices to former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif and 137 others nominated in a case lodged by Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) regarding the 2014 Model Town incident.

During the hearing, PAT chief Dr Tahirul Qadri appeared before the bench and said, “Zero progress has been made in our case since former Punjab IG Mushtaq Sukhera was indicted.”

Qadri urged that a new JIT be formed to probe into the case again.

Meanwhile, former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif’s counsel, Azam Tarar, appeared on his behalf and sought more time from the court to prepare his arguments.

The court then formed a larger bench for the constitution of a new JIT to probe into the case.

The five-judge larger bench, including Justice Nisar and Justice Asif Saeed Khosa, will hear the case from December 5. Further, the chief justice said the bench will include representatives from all provinces.

At least 14 people were killed and 100 others injured in police action against Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) workers in Lahore’s Model Town area during an ‘anti-encroachment operation’ on June 17 in 2014.

    I am the co-founder of JustCBD label (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently planning to develop my wholesale side of company. I am hoping someone at targetdomain can help me . I thought that the most suitable way to accomplish this would be to reach out to vape shops and cbd retail stores. I was really hoping if anybody could recommend a reputable website where I can buy CBD Shops Business Data I am currently checking out creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the most suitable solution and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
