KARACHI—Litigants faced difficulties as lawyers have continued boycott of legal proceedings in City Court, Malir court and the high court against Chief Justice Sajjad Ali Shah’s son, Owais Ali Shah’s abduction for the second day on Wednesday.
Lawyers had called a strike in different courts including Sindh High Court yesterday in light of the recent kidnapping of Chief Justice’s son. Prisoners were not shifted to courts today for hearings due to the strike.
Chief Justice Sajjad Ali Shah’s son was kidnapped Sunday in Clifton after he exited a superstore. Preliminary details of the incidents suggest that kidnappers did a recce and had the required information to execute the plan.
The lawyers in their meetings demanded of the government to ensure safe and immediate recovery of son of the SHC Chief Justice. They said that the abduction is a proof that the lives of the citizens are not secure and terrorists can struck at will.—INP
