ISLAMABAD - The Supreme Court of Pakistan Friday took notice of the Bahria Enclave incident where during the recording of a private TV program, seating collapsed causing deaths and injuries to many people.
Chief Justice Saqib Nisar has sought a report from the Chief Commissioner and IGP, Islamabad within 48 hours.
An SC press release said the notice was taken on media reports that said two people were killed and dozens of others injured.
It regretted that “instead of providing medical aid to the injured people, most of the management staff escaped from the site and turned off the lights that made it difficult to carry out rescue activities. Reportedly, injured people were not provided proper medical treatment.”
The statement also admonished the Islamabad administration, saying it “allegedly remained a silent spectator in the whole episode and seemed reluctant to take action in accordance with law.”
