The Supreme Court on Thursday ordered the closure of police torture cells in private houses while a three-member bench headed by Justice Javed Iqbal has directed the Punjab government to issue show cause notices to the concerned DIGs, SPs in the police brutality case, a private TV reported. However, the IG Police claimed that the media had overplayed the issue and has urged the Supreme Court to take notice of it. Earlier there was no concrete evidence to support these allegations but the footage from Chiniot showed policemen in Pakistan at their very worst. The Chief Justice had constituted a three-member bench, headed by Justice Javed Iqbal to hear this suo moto notice and many believe that the footage which was released earlier had sealed the fate of the officers involved.
