SC stops JIT from further inquiry into Arsalan case


The Supreme Court of Pakistan has stopped the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) probing the Malik Riaz-Arsalan Iftikhar scandal from advancing inquiry until further order.
The stay order has been issued by the Supreme Court until August 2.
During hearing of Arsalan Ifitikhar case in Supreme Court, Zahid Bukhari on part of Malik Riaz raised an objection over the airing of a video in the court, asking what was the authenticity of the video?
“How did the counsel for Arsalan Iftikhar came to know about this,” Zahid consulted.
He advocated that the action had badly affected the case of his client.
At this, Justice Jawad S Khwaja said the issuance of stay order until August 2 would not create any colossal problem. Justice Khilji Arif while directing Zahid Bukhari, said, “Let the court do its job. Please avoid uttering such words which may cause trouble for you.”
Raising his objection on the video, NAB Prosecutor General KK Agha said how did Arsalan Iftikhar get access to the Supreme
Court video. However, the Supreme Court rejected the objections raised by Agha.
The apex court said in its judicial order that the court noted the objections raised by the learned counsel Zahid Bukhari on part of Malik Riaz. “When the court issued prohibitory order, he also raised objections. The reply to these issues is very simple. The learned counsel is not conscious of the reality that the court had issued notices in this regard.”


  1. now what is this?????? first SC is not interrupting in the investigation and now it stop the investigation and restrict to verify the evidence or record the statement of Salman Ahmed son-in-law of Malik Riaz……why????

  2. why SC is taking such actions in this case which can damage its authority, this could be concluded after getting evidence from salman and others involved but now SC suddenly jumped in and stopped JIT to further investigate the issue

  3. what SC wants??? why they stop JIT from further investigation ?? May be statement of Mr Salman and Mr Khalil prove final saying for this case.
