CJP expressed these views on the inaugural ceremony of the Supreme Court 's new registry building in Quetta and hope that the structure will play its role in delivering justice to people.

Justice Nisar, during his speech on the occasion, said that institution is not defined by buildings but by the people that work there, while also emphasising the importance of justice for the development of a society.

Promising to protect rights of Balochistan, the CJP assured that injustice with the province will not be allowed. The apex court judge called upon his fellow judges at all levels to dispense justice by rising above personal gains.

He said if due attention is not paid to water crises, the issue might get worse. He said overseas Pakistanis have donated 7.9 million pounds to the dam fund so far.

Furthermore, the chief justice congratulated those "who made an effort to complete this project".

A three-member Supreme Court bench, headed by the chief justice and also comprising Justice Asif Saeed Khosa and Justice Gulzar Ahmed, marked the occasion by hearing a case regarding the blockades placed on Zarghun Road in the provincial capital.

"You have ordered the removal of blockades from roads all over the country," observed lawyer Nazeer Agha before informing the top judge that Zarghun Road still remains blocked under the pretext of being in the Red Zone.

At this, Justice Nisar instructed the advocate general to summon Balochistan's chief secretary to appear before the court, remarking that "roads are not blocked anywhere in the world for the sake of security."

However, a formal notice to summon the official was not issued.
