LAHORE: A three-member bench of the Lahore High Court (LHC) will hear the petitions against the Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) led protest of opposition parties, which is scheduled to take place on Mall Road today.

The full bench – headed by Justice Amin-ud-Din Khan and comprising Justice Shahid Jamil Khan and Justice Shahid Karim Khan – will hear the petition.

The court on Tuesday issued the order on a petition moved by a local trader Naeem Mir. The bench ordered the respondents to ensure their presence in the court by 9 am on Wednesday.

In the arguments presented by the petitioner’s side, it was stated that Mall Road is an economic hub and the protest will hinder livelihoods of people. The petitioner stated that Nasir Bagh should be considered as the alternate venue for the protest. The administration had stated earlier that people protesting should not choose Mall Road, as Section 144 is in place in that area which forbids more than four people to gather at one place.
