LHC extends Model Town JIT suspension until April 30
LAHORE: Lahore High Court (LHC) halted new Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to probe Model Town carnage till April 30.
A three-member bench of LHC, headed by Justice Qasim Khan, heard case.
Advocate General Punjab Ahmed Jamal Sukhera sought time from court to submit government’s reply.
Earlier, counsel of constable Khurram Rafiq and others had argued before court that after submission of report of first JIT another probe could not be constituted under law and pleaded to court to declare decision of government as void.
Court extended its order to JIT to stop probe until April 30.
New JIT was constituted on January 3 this year for a fresh probe into the 2014 Model Town carnage, following a notification issued by the Punjab chief secretary.
