ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Tuesday directed Inspector-General Police Punjab Tariq Saleem Dogar to appear before the court.
The apex court was hearing the suo motu case of police torture on lawyers at the Aiwan-i-Adl in Lahore.
During the hearing, Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry observed that “we are part of both the bar and the bench and would not support anyone”.
IGP Dogar did not appear in the court today due to his engagements at the Sihala Police College. Moreover, copies of FIR pertaining to the said case were also not submitted in court.
Meanwhile, Kazim Khan, a member of the inquiry committee constituted to probe the clashes between lawyers and police, told the court that the matter would not resolve without the issuance of a judicial order. Chief Justice Iftikhar then asked Khan to prepare a comprehensive report after meeting with both parties.
