Lahore: ‘Fake’ lawyer arrested
LAHORE: The Lahore Bar Association (LBA) on Monday arrested a fake lawyer claiming to be the Punjab governor’s legal advisor and assistant advocate general, Punjab.
A local advocate had filed a written application in the Punjab Bar Council (PBC) submitting that Safdar Ali advocate had visited his office and tortured his lady client. He pointed out that Safdar claimed to a legal advisor to the governor and assistant advocate general, Punjab.
He requested the Punjab Bar Council to take necessary action against Safdar Ali. PbBC scrutinized his record and it was found Safdar was neither registered with the council nor was he a lawyer.
PbBC forwarded its decision to the Lahore Bar Association which detained Safdar Ali and handed him over to Islam Pura police for the registration of a criminal case against him.
