IHC disposes of mother’s petition
Back at home, the Islamabad High Court on Wednesday disposed of a petition filed by Arshad Sharif’s mother seeking post-mortem report of his son.
The court wrapped up the case after the deputy attorney-general informed it that Arshad’s mother has been given a copy of the post-mortem.
IHC Chief Justice Umar Farooq, on this occasion, remarked that this murder trial can take place in Pakistan. “The Imran Farooq’s murder case was tried in the Pakistani court,” he recalled.
