KARACHI: The representative bodies of lawyers of Sindh are observing two day strike in protest over refusal of Chief Justice of High Court of Sindh to accede to their demand in respect of District & Sessions Judge Malir.
The president of Sindh High Court Bar Association, Chairman Executive Committee of Sindh Bar Council, President Karachi Bar Association and Malir District Bar Association called on Chief Justice of High Court of Sindh on Thursday and demanded transfer of DJ Malir on account of her alleged unbecoming attitude, insult to lawyers.
As per reports, the delegation of lawyers failed in convincing the CJ about their complaint against the lady DJ.
Insiders maintain that DJ Malir has taken notice of the entry and exit of vehicles/ water tankers in the premises of the Malir District Court at night. The water tankers are filling the purified water from inside court premises and selling outside to private persons.
The DJ is responsible for security of the premises of the Malir Bar and passed orders exercising jurisdiction and has not exceeded any norm. No one was insulted what to talk of a lawyer, a bar member said adding that miscreants were minting money by abusing the facility of purified water.
The boycott is likely to result in adjournment of thousands of cases in Sindh province adding to the problems of litigants/accused in custody.
