ISLAMABAD - Submitting a miscellaneous application in Bahria Town land grab case, Malik Riaz has alleged that lower judiciary is attempting to prevent him from pursuing the Chief Justice’s son Arsalan Iftikhar case before NAB’s inquiry team.

Malik Riaz filing a fresh application through his counsel Zahid Bukhari in the Supreme Court contended that lower judiciary is victimising him by passing several orders in false cases. He requested the apex court that till the finalisation of contempt of court case and inquiry regarding Arsalan Iftikhar’s case, no harassment be made against him and his family and not to be arrested him in any case, so that transparent inquiry may be conducted and full right of adducing the evidence be given to him. He also prayed that all the law enforcement agencies including Anti-Corruption Establishment and Punjab police may kindly be directed to refrain from harassing and victimising him and his family in any manner under the garb of registration of false cases till the finalisation of the inquiry of Arsalan’s case.

“The courts seized off the matters relating to Bahria Town (Pvt) Limited or Malik Riaz Hussain and may proceed without being prejudiced by the litigations pending between Arsalan Iftikhar and Malik Riaz Hussain,” Malik Riaz further requested.

He said that he had already prayed to the court for the grant of security to him, especially during his appearance in the court but the SC did not pass in this regard.

“I have been falsely involved in a case FIR No. 29 of the 2009 registered with ACE, Rawalpindi Range and the NAB through a notification issued directions to the Anti-Corruption Establishment to transfer of record of that case,” he added.

He further submitted that Lahore High Court Rawalpidi bench had also dismissed his petition without hearing his counsel. “So in this way, principle of natural justice was violated. Justice hurried amounts to Justice buried.”

He said that due to un-called for harassment and his false implication in different cases, his health was deteriorating day-by-day putting his life at risk.
