–Judge expresses displeasure over non-registration of case against ex-CM’s son despite session court’s order
LAHORE: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar on Saturday ordered the registration of a case against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hamza Shehbaz for allegedly threatening his former wife, Ayesha Ahad.
The top judge gave the directions during the hearing of the case at the Supreme Court (SC) Lahore Registry.
Justice Nisar expressed his displeasure over the fact that a case had not been filed against Hamza despite the session court’s order.
He summoned Hamza Shehbaz, who is the son of former Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif, to record his statement at 1pm, however, he was informed that the PML-N leader was out of the country and is expected to return within two to three days.
Meanwhile, the CJP approved Ayesha Ahad’s plea for security.
Ayesha Ahad has claimed that Hamza Shehbaz contracted a marriage with her in 2010 on the basis of a lie.
She further claimed of having substantial evidence which she intends to produce in front of the ECP.
Ayesha lamented that no committee was formed to probe into the matter in the past and observed that former premier Nawaz Sharif was somewhat in the same position as hers in the past.
“Goons of Maqsood Butt were used to terrorise me,” she said.
She alleged that Hamza is neither Sadiq nor Ameen and the whole Sharif family covers up each other’s crimes.
Meanwhile, Hamza’s spokesperson said that Ayesha’s allegations are “a pack of lies” being made for political gains, and that she was being manipulated by the leaders of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
“Imran Khan couldn’t even clearly reject the allegations even once. PTI should ask its leader to prove innocence rather than imposing allegations on others in reaction,” he said.
