Chief justice of Pakistan sets up complaint offices for minorities
The Chief Justice of Pakistan has set up offices to hear the complaints of minorities.
He created the separate area at the Lahore registry on Sunday.
A staff member of the SC will receive applications of minorities and those pertaining to human rights violations and forward them 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 due to security protocol.
He took notice of her cries outside Court and asked her to return on Sunday.
Sughran Bibi claimed before a two-member bench that her only son was killed in a fake encounter with police when she refused to hand over her home to Azam Butt and his accomplices of the area.
He subsequently implicated her in a kidnapping for ransom case and she was jailed for 10 months.
Bibi alleged that her elder daughter was kidnapped by the accused during her imprisonment and there was no clue about her whereabouts.
The CJP ordered that the matter be treated as a suo motu case while directing issuance of noti¬ces to all the accused, including the police officers, to appear be¬¬fore the court at the next hearing.
