Pakistan Bar Council condemns the arrest of Advocate Ahmad Mukhtar

Islamabad, September 07, 2019 (PPI-OT): Syed Amjad Shah, Vice-Chairman, Pakistan Bar Council has strongly condemned the registration of FIR and arrest of Mr. Ahmad Mukhtar, Advocate, Ferozewala as a result of an incident of harsh words exchanged with Police official on car parking issue. Not only the learned Advocate was confined in lockup for the whole night but his Chamber was also unauthorizedly raided by the DSP, Ferozewala.

The learned Advocate was presented in Court next morning handcuffed holding by the Lady Constable, just to humiliate the Advocate in Public. It is ironical that the lady Constable who is said to be the Complainant in the matter, was deliberately permitted to hold handcuff chain is gross violation of the law, which amounts to allow creating an Anarchy.

The Vice-Chairman, Pakistan Bar Council has, therefore, not only strongly condemned the insulting and humiliating act of Police towards Lawyers but also demanded of the Inspector General of Punjab Police, for thorough inquiry and strict action against concerned SHO, DSP and DPO, Sheikhupura. He has also endorsed the Strike Call given by the Punjab Bar Council against the unbecoming conduct and action of the Police.
