LAHORE - Chief Justice Khawaja Muhammad Sharif expressing concern over atrocities of police observed on Friday he was thinking that Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif should be summoned in the court so that he may be asked why police in the province of Punjab were taking lives of people instead of protecting them. The CJ was hearing a contempt of court case according to which police killed 15 members of a family in Toba Taek Singh in a fake encounter and despite orders of the Lahore High Court FIR was not registered against the police official involved in the gory incident. The CJ remarked Shahaz Sharif who had declared himself as Khadim-e-Ala of Punjab should see what havoc police were playing with the weak and innocent people. According to Islamic teachings a ruler may be summoned in the court of law if such a situation comes to surface, the CJ stressed. However, instead of calling Shahbaz Sharif, the CJ summoned for the same day Dr Syed Tauqeer Shah, Principal Secretary to the chief minister. The CJ asked the CMs principal secretary to direct the IGP to take legal action against all the police officers who had been found guilty during the investigation for the murder of 15 citizens. The CJ ordered the IGP to complete the challan against said police officers and submit it in Anti-Terrorism Court-1, Lahore, within seven days. The petition was moved by Basiran Bibi and others in which they submitted that the CJ, disposing of suo moto notice, had directed the SHO Police Station Rajana, Toba Taek Singh, to register a case against police officials including former DPO Sahiwal Javed Hussain involved in the murder of 15 innocent citizens in a fake police encounter in the light of investigation conducted by SSP (INV) Shahid Hanif. The petitioners submitted the SHO did not comply with the orders stating he could not take action as police officers were involved in the case. They submitted the DPO Toba Taek Singh and DSP Operation were also apprised about the situation, however, they too were adamant to force the petitioner for effecting compromise. They prayed the court since respondents had committed gross contempt of court so they were liable to be prosecuted and punished. Regarding police officers who extended threat to the petitioners, the court directed the principal secretary to ask those police officers to remain within their domain. The CJ disposing of the contempt petition also directed Rana Bakhtiar Ali, Deputy Prosecutor General, to scrutinise the challan of the case and supervise the case in ATC-1, Lahore.
