ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News – March 1, 2021): The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Monday gave a lawyer Nazia Bibi bail after arrest in the case of an IHC building attack and the decision on bail from another lawyer Reserved.
A department bank made up of Judge Aamer Farooq and Judge Mohsin Akhter Kiyani heard the petition from two lawyers after they were arrested on bail.
Sardar Latif Khosa, attorney Rizwan Abbasi, and other lawyers appeared before the court.
In the course of the trial, Latif Khosa argued that Nazia Bibi had a two-year-old child and was also ill. She was following a case before IHC’s # 7 Bank at the time of the incident, he said, adding that the attorney had no connection to the case.
He further argued that another attorney, Naveed Malik, had been named in the case, but he had no connection with the incident.
He was in the IHC during the incident but was not on the Supreme Justice block.
Justice Farooq noted that if the juniors were on the front line, their seniors should have convinced them to avoid such an attitude. The attorneys involved should be held accountable in the Bar Council.
Judge Farooq said that professional training of junior lawyers is required.
However, the prosecutor said that attorney Naveed Malik led the demonstrators according to CDR and CCTV footage and four witness police officers also made a statement on the matter. This is no ordinary building, he said.
Thereafter, the court granted attorney Nazia Bibi bail against bail for 50,000 rupees and reserved judgment on Naveed Malik’s bail request.
