LAHORE - The Lahore High Court granting a request made by the Deputy Attorney General on Friday adjourned the hearing of a petition earlier filed against Federal Law Minister Babar Awan allegedly for giving a bogus cheque of Rs 30 million to District Bar Hafizabad. On the last hearing, Justice Ijaz Ahmed Chaudhry had directed DAG Naveed Inayat Malik to get reply and para-wise comments of the Federal Law Secretary about the cheque. However, the DAG sought further time to get the needful done and the court accordingly adjourned the matter till November 1. District Bar Hafizabad President Khalid Tehami had filed the petition through his counsel Mushtaq Ahmed Mohal advocate against the Law Minister for giving a bogus cheque to the Bar. The petitioners counsel contended that Babar Awan gave a cheque of Rs 30 million to the Bar in May 2010, however when the Bar went to get it encashed it was found bogus. Giving a background, the petitioner said after the visit of the Minister to the Bar, he being the Bar president had a meeting with Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry who annoyed Babar Awan and thus the payment was stopped. The petitioner prayed to the court to start proceedings against the Minister for giving a bogus cheque and cheating the Bar.
