31 December, 2018
Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar Sunday asked why India was stealing Pakistan’s water, saying that it won’t be allowed to do so.
The CJP was hearing a petition in the Lahore Supreme Court registry related to river Ravi and Abbasia Link Canal.
During the hearing, the CJP asked whether the Punjab government knew about the situation and what steps could be taken in this regard.
He said that it won’t be allowed that water was being stolen from Abbasia Link Canal. The CJP said that a case should be registered against those stealing water and summoned a report from irrigation secretary on January 4.
The top judge ordered that an operation should be conducted along with police so that no one could be deprived of the resource.
