The Pak Banker - - NATIONAL -

Supreme Court of Pak­istan (SCP) on Fri­day lifted a ban on houbara bus­tard, a rare desert bird whose meat is prized among Arab sheikhs for be­ing an aphro­disiac. A five-mem­ber larger bench of the apex court an­nounced the ver­dict on the re­view pe­ti­tions filed against the ban im­posed by a three-mem­ber bench of the apex court. Dur­ing the pro­ceed­ing, the court ap­proved re­view pe­ti­tions of the fed­eral and pro­vin­cial govern­ment. The de­ci­sion was favoured by four out of five judges of the larger bench.
