Resolution condemning attack on Justice Ijaz’s residence tabled in PA

LAHORE: A resolution condemning the attack on Supreme Court (SC) judge Justice Ijazul Ahsan was submitted in the Punjab Assembly (PA) on Monday.

The team would be headed by Punjab Additional IG Mohammad Tahir whereas DIG Investigation Sultan Chaudhry, one member each from Military Intelligence, Inter-Service Intelligence, Intelligence Bureau, Special Branch and Forensic Agency will also be part of it.
