LAHORE - Kisan Board Pakistan (KBP) has filed a petition before Lahore High Court against alleged operations of an American private security company 'Blackwater. KBPs president Sardar Zafar Hussain Khan through counsel Mirza Abdul Khaliq submitted that the Blackwater with a new name XE was conducting its illegal operations on Pakistani soil. Counsel said the Pakistani citizens were afraid of its illegal activities which have already been reported by different national newspapers. The counsel said federal government should explain its position on the matter. The petitioner has made parties to federal government and ministry of interior. The petition is fixed for hearing on October 26. Decision of single bench challenged Wukala Mahaz Barai Tahafaz Dastoor has filed an intra-court appeal (ICA) before Lahore High Court challenging an order of single bench wherein a petition against military operation and alleged American aggression was dismissed. Justice Asif Saeed Khosa had dismissed the petition on October 9 last observing that petitioners prayers were either outside the scope of jurisdiction of the court or they pertained to matters of public policy which the court had consistently refrained from entering into. Now the petitioner through its counsel Dr Abdul Basit filed ICA praying to set aside the order of single bench and issue directions to federal government to stop military operation in northern areas of the country and American drone attacks. Counsel said that Pakistan Army spokesman claimed to have the capability to shoot down 'drones but the government has taken a policy decision to permit them to operate for killing Pakistani citizens with impunity. He said the Pakistani armed forces should be directed to defend the country with all means at their disposal including its nuclear arsenal. He also sought directions for government to declare America as an enemy state and stop aiding the state by protecting its supply lines through surface transit over the territory of Pakistan. Reply sought from DG Rescue 1122 The Lahore High Court on Friday sought reply from Director General Rescue 1122 within two weeks on a petition challenging appointments of two grade-16 employees in Rescue 1122 service. The petitioners Shahid Sipra and Kashif Latif filed this petition through Asif Mehmood Khan advocate, pleading that they both topped in written as well as physical tests in district Jhang and Kasur respectively. But surprisingly Asghari Parveen was appointed in Jhang and Faisal Nadeem was given job in Kasur despite the fact they failed to pass physical test. The petitioner prayed to the court to set aside their appointments and instead consider them for the posts.
