Lahore: Bail in ex-LHC CJ case extended
LAHORE: A central court judge on Monday extended interim-bail of Punjab Chief Minister’s former Principal Secretary Tauqeer Shah and Staff Officer TalhaBarki by October 12, accused of releasing fake intelligence reports about the murder plot of former Lahore High Court Chief Justice Khawaja Muhammad Shahrif. The court adjourned as, once again, it was informed that the investigation of the case has not been completed. However, the IO complained that accused were not cooperating during the course of investigation, causing the delay.
On this, the court directed the accused to cooperate with the IO and asked the latter to submit complete investigation report till October 12. Federal Investigation Agency had registered the FIR against the accused on the charges of issuing a false intelligence report on murder plot of former LHC chief justice Khwaja Sharif.
The agency had accused them of hatching a conspiracy by managing issuance of a false intelligence report about the murder plot in a bid to create differences among the federal government, provincial government and judiciary.
