Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar Saturday ordered the accountability court to hear the case pertaining to Model Town carnage on daily basis.

A two-member bench of the apex court, headed by the chief justice, heard a petition pertaining to the Model Town incident at the Supreme Court’s Lahore registry. Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Dr Tahirul Qadri appeared before the bench and requested that the top court constitute an impartial joint investigation team (JIT) to probe the incident. The chief justice informed the PAT chief that on his request he has ordered the ATC to hear the case on daily basis. “Since your appeal was rejected in the Lahore High Court, you can file it in the Supreme Court,” he told Qadri.

Directing the ATC to hear the case on daily basis, the bench issued notices to the Punjab government, police and the prosecution department.

At least 14 people were killed and 100 others injured in police action against PAT workers in Lahore’s Model Town area during an ‘anti-encroachment operation’ on June 17, 2014.
