MULTAN - Like other parts of the country, the lawyers of Multan observed a complete strike as a sign of protest against assassination of their three colleagues in Karachi here on Thursday.
The black coats boycotted court work as no attorney appeared before any court of law. Resultantly, the court work got paralysed and the hearing of all cases was adjourned.
The lawyers strongly protested against target killing in Karachi and shouted slogans against government. They were also holding placards and banners inscribed with their demands, asking the government to arrest the killers immediately. They warned that the lawyers would go on strike for an indefinite period if the assassins were not punished.
