Faizabad protest: IHC issues contempt notice to Ahsan Iqbal
Published at: 4 weeks ago


Islamabad: The Islamabad High Court issued a contempt notice to Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal on Friday for not taking any measures to end the Faizabad sit-in that has entered its third week.

Hearing a case pertaining to the Faizabad sit-in, Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui asked the chief commissioner why the government had not taken any steps to end the sit-in despite court orders.

The protest has entered its 19th day despite orders from both Supreme Court and IHC against the sit-in.

Earlier on Monday, IHC issued showcause notices to the authorities concerned for failing to disperse the protesters.

During the last hearing, attended by Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal, Justice Shaukat Siddiqui asked why court orders to end the protest are not being implemented.

The minister, taking sole responsibility for the failure to end the sit-in, said he wants to resolve the matter peacefully and asked the court for more time.

The court also issued showcause notices for contempt of court to the interior secretary, chief commissioner and Islamabad inspector general.

The Supreme Court also took notice of the sit-in on Tuesday and sought replies from the relevant government quarters.
