Lahore High Court to announce verdict on Model Town tragedy report today

Dec 05, 2017
LAHORE: Lahore High Court will announce today (Tuesday) its reserved ruling on a petition filed by Punjab government against the verdict of publishing a report on Model Town tragedy. The three-judge bench headed by Justice Abid Aziz Sheikh reserved the ruling on November 24 on an intra-court appeal moved by the Punjab government challenging a single bench’s decision to release the report. Other two members of the bench are Justice Syed Shahbaz Ali Rizvi and Justice Qazi Muhammad Amin Ahmad. It is pertinent to note here that Justice Syed Mazahar Ali Akbar Naqvi had on September 21 ordered the government to release the inquiry report compiled by Justice Baqir Najafi who handed it over to the Punjab chief secretary in 2014. But, the government has withheld the probe ever since. –Samaa
