Pakistan Observer - - KARACHI CITY -

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
