Defected system is fault of legislators, remarks CJP during Tayyaba torture case hearing
Justice Saqib Nisar said that Tayyaba was like his own daughter, and her case had to be examined in detail.
'We cannot ignore the granting of bail by judicial officer and the matter of handing of the child' remarked CJP
During today's hearing, Counsel for accused Maheen Zafar told the court that the clauses that were mentioned in the case were bailable.
Justice Saqib Nisar asked the lawyer how two judicial officers could grant bail to the accused and how the judicial officers decided to hand over the minor ignoring legal formalities.
CJP categorically expressed that the court could investigated both these officers whether they issued any notice first regarding bail and supervision of child or not.
The Chief Justice continued that it was hard to understand who took the girl’s parents to the lawyer and how they signed the pardon.
Justice Saqib Nisar inquired whether advocate Raja Zahoor was included in the case or not. Police informed him that he had been summoned for investigation.
Meanwhile, the police submitted its final report to the Supreme Court on the investigation conducted against Tayyaba’s employers, Additional Sessions Judge Raja Khurram Ali Khan and his wife Maheen Zafar.
