A civil court in Lahore has issued non-bailable arrest warrants for Punjab chief secretary for non-compliance of court order, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The court also issued arrest warrants for two energy department officials.

Civil Judge Muhammad Tariq Rasheed heard a case pertaining to not writing down new address of a factory after its shifting to another place.

The judge issued non-bailable arrest warrants for Punjab chief secretary and also issued warrants for energy department chief inspectors Abdul Ali and Mirza Naveed for not complying with the court order.

The court also ordered to withhold salaries of the said government officials.

The petition was filed by the factory owner of Iqbal and Sons, Kasur. He said his factory was shifted to another place and requested the court to issue order for the correction of factory’s new address.

The court had ordered the chief secretary and two energy department inspectors to change the address but they failed to carry out court’s order.
