Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar has reprimanded Punjab Police officers over the closure of a road as part of his security protocol in Rawalpindi.
In a video making rounds over the internet, the top judge can be seen admonishing police personnel deployed for his security after someone from the crowd informs him that the thoroughfare has been shut for traffic.
“What is our fault? They [police personnel] aren’t letting us through and have also used force while trying to bar the commuters from passing,” the person can be heard as saying.
Addressing the commoner’s grievance, the CJP furiously questions the officer and his colleagues, “Who asked you to do this? Who permitted you to trouble the people? ”
“Unblock the road immediately and let them through,” he orders.
