Lawyers thrash magistrate in Faisalabad
FAISALABAD, April 5: Two lawyers allegedly tortured a judicial magistrate and his subordinate on Tuesday.
Lawyer Tanvir appeared before judicial magistrate Rehmat Ali along with his colleague, Abid, in connection with a motorcycle challan case. They had an argument with magistrate’s reader Tariq and the magistrate asked them to behave.
Sources said the lawyers took warning by the magistrate as an insult and thrashed him and his subordinate. Later, the magistrate left his court in protest against his manhandling.
In reaction, judges of other courts went on strike. However, bar office bearers reconciled both sides.
