ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar on Saturday threatened to resign after lawyers staged a protest during the hearing of sub-inspector torture case.
Lahore Bar’s secretary Sohail Arshad prayed to Supreme Court (SC) to dispose of the FIR lodged against a lawyer as he did not assault the policeman.
The top judge rejected the request and said he will tender resignation if he fails to ensure justice.
He also expressed deep anger over lawyers chanting slogans in the courtroom.
Meanwhile, the Lahore bar secretary said that lawyers will continue to protest outside the court if the CJ won’t dismiss FIR against the fellow lawyer.— NNI
