QUETTA: Lawyers boycotted proceedings of the Balochistan High Court and subordinate courts across the province on Thursday to show solidarity with Multan lawyers.
The lawyers in Multan have been protesting for the past few days against the issuance of arrest warrants for Multan Bar president Sher Zaman Qureshi.
The general secretary of the Balochistan High Court Bar Association, Nadir Chalgari, said that no lawyer appeared before any court in Balochistan on Thursday.
Mr Chalgari said that the issue should be resolved amicably through talks and both sides should show restraint.
He demanded that warrants issued against Mr Qureshi should be withdrawn immediately to normalise the situation.
