CJP Khosa owns no social media account, clarifies SC
ISLAMABAD — The Supreme Court (SC) on Saturday clarified that the recently appointed chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa has no social media presence and all the accounts on his name are fake.

“It is clarified that the chief justice is neither using any Twitter or Facebook account or page, nor any other ID on social networking websites,” said the public relation officer of the apex court.

The clarification came after a fake social media account being operated in the name of the new chief justice came to light.

Moreover, the top court has also directed the Federal Investigation Authority (FIA) and Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) to block the accounts, IDs and pages activated in the name of the top judge.

On Friday, Justice Khosa took oath as the 26th chief justice of Pakistan in a ceremony held at the President House.
