Justice Tariq Saleem conducted the hearing today while the petitioner’s husband Abdullah Haseeb, also visually-impaired, appeared before the court.

Amna pleaded to the court that she was a teacher in Mandi Bahauddin’s School of Special Education and her husband works at the finance department in Lahore.

The applicant’s counsel said that there had been no progress yet on his client’s transfer applications for over a year now.
