BHC likely to get country’s first female chief justice

ISLAMABAD: Justice Syeda Tahira Safdar may become the first chief justice (CJ) of a high court in the country’s history after the retirement of incumbent Balochistan High Court (BHC) CJ Mohammad Noor Meskan­zai.

The incumbent CJ is due to retire on August 31 following which Justice Safdar is likely to be elevated to the post.
