DBA observes strike, demand separate bench


SARGODHA: The District Bar Association (DBA) observed strike on Thursday, demanding the establishment of Lahore High Court’s (LHC) divisional bench in Sargodha.

The DBA body banned the entry of lawyers and the general public into courts, due to which the complainants who came from far flung areas faced problems.

DBA President Sardar Ansar Abbas and General Secretary Saad Ullah Warraich told a meeting that the government should take the matter seriously, otherwise, the protest would be expanded and they would boycott the court proceedings permanently till the fulfilment of their demands.

They said that a complete strike would also be observed on Saturday.
