The counsel apprehended more harassment by IO Shehzad Ahmed.

Are these people humans, the bench observed addressing  Khalid Rajpar advocate, customs counsel present in some other case. What is happening, the bench asked saying that while lawyers sweat to defend the officials before the court, such acts bring shame to the department.
