The Lahore Police on Friday raided the house of Hassaan Niazi, a lawyer and nephew of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
Hassaan Niazi participated in the violent lawyers’ march on the Punjab Institute of Cardiology on Wednesday.
At least seven patients died, more than twenty doctors were injured and infrastructure was destroyed during the protest.
Hasaan is the son of Hafeezullah Niazi. He wasn’t named in the FIR registered against over 200 lawyers on Thursday.
On the other hand, The Islamabad High Court (IHC) also issued a show-cause notice to IHC Bar Association Secretary Umair Baloch for forcing lawyers out of the court as the bar was observing a strike against what it claimed was the high-handedness faced by the legal fraternity when it stormed a cardiac hospital in Lahore a day earlier.
IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah issued him a notice for “misconduct and contempt” and also cancelled his licence to practice in the court till December 19 when Baloch has been summoned to give an explanation for his actions.
The court has also issued notices to the Pakistan Bar Council vice chairman and the Supreme Court Bar Association president. It also summoned the Islamabad advocate general as well.
