ISLAMABAD – Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar has ordered a judicial inquiry into the incident of police manhandling and beating up journalists on Press Freedom Day (May 3).
A three-member bench heard the suo motu case on Friday.
Inspector General of Police, Sultan Azam Taimuri told the court that the journalists needed to have a NOC since Section 144 was imposed in the metropolis.
The journalists were marching towards the Parliament when the police blocked their way at D-Square.
Taimuri said that the marchers attempted to break the barriers when stopped from entering the Red Zone.
The Chief Justice asked under what law a protest is prohibited in Red Zone. He said the journalists were holding a peaceful march and assaulting them was not ethical.
Later, the chief justice directed Sessions Judge Sohail Nasir to complete the inquiry within 10 days and submit a report. He also sought an explanation from the Islamabad Deputy Commissioner about the imposition of Section 144.
