IHC directs govt to provide bullet proof car to ex-CJP.

ISLAMABAD: Islamabad High Court on Wednesday directed the government to immediately provide a bullet proof car to former chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, Express News reported.
In his verdict on a petition filed by Advocate Sheikh Ahsanuddin, IHC Justice Shaukat Siddiqui said the former chief justice should be provided security on a par with former prime ministers.
In an earlier hearing on January 4, Siddiqui had said that adequate security should be put in place at Chaudhry’s residence. He had added that the bulletproof vehicle provided previously was ‘out-of-order’.
“Bulletproof vehicles from other government functionaries will also be taken back if the former CJP is not provided with a bulletproof car,” Justice Siddiqui had warned.
He had further observed that the government seemed vindictive towards the former CJP by not providing him enough security.

  1. The ex CJP Justice (RTD) Iftikhar Muhammad Choudhry deserves to be protected by the State Machinery; he must be given maximum security for his lifetime.
