LHC to take up only urgent cases

An executive committee headed by the Chief Justice Lahore High Court Muhammad Qasim Khan decided on Friday that only urgent cases would be heard in Lahore High Court.

Earlier in the day, Islamabad High Court had ordered the release of the prisoners with petty crimes in the wake of the growing threat of the coronavirus.

In his remarks, Chief Justice Islamabad High Court said “The jails are already overcrowded. God forbid, what will happen if coronavirus spreads among the prisoners?”
