Court summons Punjab health minister on Nov 14

A local court in Lahore has summoned Punjab Health Minister Yasmin Rashid on November 14 in connection with her alleged remarks against the lawyers' attack on the Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) case.

Civil Judge Rabia Riaz has summoned Yasmin Rashid on November 14.

It is pertinent to note that in December 2019, the lawyers’ fraternity in a large number gathered outside the PIC to protest against a "mocking video" but the protest, however, turned violent as the lawyers initially closed off entry and exit points to the hospital and damaged equipment inside and broke windows of the hospital as well as cars parked outside.
