Sindh Govt Fumes At Suspension Of MPs Over Surge In Dog-Bite Cases

The Sindh government has expressed no confidence in the judge of the two-member bench of the Sindh High Court, who ordered the suspension of Ratodero and Jamshoro members of the Sindh Assembly for not monitoring the dog-culling campaign and increasing incidents of Dog-biting.

The Sindh government has submitted a petition to the Sindh High Court seeking transfer of the petition from the Sukkur Bench to Karachi, expressing a lack of confidence in Justice Aftab Ahmed Gorar.

Advocate General Sindh Salman Talib-ud-Din submitted the petition on behalf of the provincial government in which it was stated that illegal orders have been passed by Justice Aftab Ahmed Gorar.

The petition requested the Chief Justice of Sindh High Court not to file any case against the Sindh government in the bench of which Justice Aftab Ahmed Gorar is a part, while the Sindh government, all departments and government officials will not appear before the next Justice Aftab Ahmed Gorar.

The Chief Justice was further requested to transfer the petitions from Sukkur Bench to Karachi.

It may be recalled that a bench of the High Court comprising Justice Aftab Ahmed Gorar and Justice Mustafa Kamal Alam yesterday heard a case related to increasing incidents of dig-bitting in various districts of Sindh.

The court in its written order directed the Provincial Election Commission to issue a notification of suspension of the members and warned that action would be taken against the member of Sindh Assembly in the area where the dog-biting incident took place.

The apex court had warned in the order that if there was an incident of dogs bite in any area now, the MPA of that area would be responsible for it and action could be taken against them.

The court also said in its order that MPAs had failed to provide facilities to the people of their constituencies.
