SC summons provincial IGs in illegal occupation case

  • AAG claims provincial IGs not cooperating 

ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar on Wednesday ordered the inspector generals (IGs) of all four provinces to appear before the apex court on July 6 (Friday) in a case pertaining to the illegal occupation of official residences by police officials.

Hearing the case, the CJP also summoned a record of the ongoing cases in lower courts and stay orders issued on the residences in question.

During the hearing, the additional attorney general claimed that the provincial IGs are not cooperating.

“In Islamabad alone, 200 official residences have been illegally occupied by police officials,” the additional attorney general said.

“We apprised the Islamabad IG but he is not cooperating with us,” he lamented, adding that the situation is similar in Karachi.

Following this, Justice Nisar ordered the IGs to appear in court. However, the additional attorney general said it was not possible for the IGs to appear immediately and asked for the hearing of the case to be adjourned till Friday.
