Court stops police from filing FIR against Covid SOPs violators
Reportedly, judicial magistrate Javed Korijo on Monday restricted the police in Karachi East and Korangi from registering First Investigation Reports (FIRs) against the violators of Section 144. The court issued a written order in this regard.
The court showed its annoyance over the registration of cases against the accused of violating Section 144.
Justice Korijo remarked that the court time and again was directing the police to not register cases for violating of Section 144. But police were not paying heed to the court order. He said that in case of Section 144 violation, the police should register a complaint instead of an FIR.
The court also ordered for the release of accused arrested for violating the Covid curbs and directed the police to register written complaint against the accused instead of making cases against them.
