Excessive security personnel called-off from Jati Umra


LAHORE: Soon after Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar’s orders pertaining to excessive security measures, the personnel deployed for the security of the Sharif family in Jati Umra were called back on Friday.

The CJP while hearing a case in Peshawar had ordered to take back extra security from non-government officials.

Implementing the orders, 54 elite security forces personnel were called back from Jati Umra, whereas the police also called back 25 of its personnel from the Sharif family’s security.

It may be noted that excessive security was called-off soon after the disqualification of former premier Nawaz Sharif, while more personnel, deployed for the security of Jati Umra, were now called to report back.
