LAHORE: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar on Friday was irked at a Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) official while hearing a case pertaining to the accumulation of water at the New Islamabad International Airport.
The CJP, while hearing the case at the Supreme Court (SC) Lahore Registry, was annoyed with the CAA for distorting the details in the authority’s written reply regarding the issue.
The top judge remarked that the video shown during the hearing revealed that a large quantity of water had accumulated at the airport while the CAA’s reply tried to downplay the matter.
The CAA deputy director general (DDG) told the court that water had accumulated in a building of the airport that was still being constructed and the accumulation had occurred due to heavy rainfall.
The CAA DDG also said that the heavy rain had caused a leakage which had allowed water to accumulate.
Justice Ijazul Ahsan remarked that how could a newly constructed structure have a leak.
The CJP dismissed CAA’s report on the matter following which he said that why contempt of court proceedings should not be initiated against the authority for submitting a false report and why the matter should not be referred to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).
