ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court on Monday ordered for the arrest of the Capital Development Authority’s Director General (planning) Ghulam Sarwar Sindhu for his allegedly 'contemptuous behaviour' directed at the court, DawnNews reported.
Sindhu had been accused of meeting with Butt who was a member of the prime minister’s task force to oversee the affairs of the CDA and who had later been barred from interfering in the development authority's matters.
Sindhu had denied contacting Butt, but allegedly maintained a discourteous attitude.
While giving his remarks on the proceedings, Justice Shaukat Siddiqui said that "firstly wrongdoings are committed" and "on top of that the court is glared at, as if everyone has become pharaoh in the CDA".
The court ordered the arrest of Sindhu and his shifting to Adiala Jail. The case's hearing was subsequently adjourned to July 13.
