LAHORE: The Lahore High Court on Friday expressed extreme dismay over non-appearance of Pakistan Railways Deputy General Manager, Inspector General Railways Police and a Deputy Superintendent of Police in spite of issuance contempt notices.

Justice Mazahar Ali Akbar Naqvi is hearing a contempt petition moved by Pakistan Railways officer Muhammad Ali Rajpar, who accused the respondents of removing him from his official residence in violation to a court order.

However, Railways police registered a case against him on the charges of corruption and abuse of power. On previous hearing he was produced in handcuffed but now he had been released from jail on bail.

As hearing started, Rajpar told the court that the federal minister for Railways is also criticising court’s order. At this, the judge remarked that everyone should bear in mind that courts give decisions in line with the constitution and law.

The court adjourned hearing till November 7 and sought appearance of Railways officials.–Staff Reporter
