SC seeks record of computerized voters list.

ISLAMABAD – The Supreme Court on Thursday asked the authorities concerned to provide the record of issuance of computerised national identity cards to eunuchs and their enrolment in voters list.
Hearing a petition about the humiliation of eunuchs, a two-member bench comprising Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and Justice Khilji Arif Hussain asked the secretary of the Social Welfare Ministry to monitor the process.
The court asked all the provincial governments to take concrete steps for the welfare of eunuchs and observed that they can be involved in tax collection on the pattern adopted by India.
Police promotions: Separately, the SC ordered promotions in police strictly in accordance with seniority lists instead of shoulder promotions. A three-member SC bench consisting of Justice Shakirullah Jan, Justice Jawad Khawaja and Justice Amir Muslim was hearing different petitions filed by superintendents of police (SP) and others against shoulder promotions. During the hearing, representatives of the Punjab and Balochistan governments said that in compliance with court orders, all out of turn/shoulder promotions had been abolished in police departments of their provinces.
