SARGODHA - Irked by the chief minister’s unfulfilled promise of building Sargodha High Court, the lawyers in the district tried to get their voices heard by storming the University of Sargodha at the laptop distribution ceremony here on Wednesday.

The lawyers, before the arrival of Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, broke into the University of Sargodha by breaching security and took hold of the stage. A security guard was also injured during the protest.

The lawyers stated that the CM had promised to establish high court bench in the district for the convenience of the citizens, and had said that he will forward the summary to the Punjab governor for approval. They claimed that the summary had not been sent since the past two years. The lawyers ended their protest after the university as well as the district administration assured them that the CM would negotiate with them upon arrival.
