ISLAMABAD - Former federal law minister Babar Awan on Monday filed a petition in the Supreme Court against Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah, contending that his life was in danger after the provincial ministers statement that he (Babar Awan) was liable to be murdered. He requested the court to constitute a judicial commission to probe the matter, examining the records and witnesses to protect his rights under the Article 4 and 9 of the Constitution. Babar said in his petition that the provincial ministers remarks put his life in danger and that the Punjab law ministers statement, which had been made in front the media, could not taken lightly under any circumstances. The former minister claimed that he learnt that the Shahbaz Sharif-led government in Punjab was desperate to arrest him for any false charge or pretext and then facilitate an attack on him in the jail, police station or some court premises. He maintained in the petition that the Punjab Police was involved in extrajudicial killings and there was a threat to his life. Babar said: If anything happens to my life, property or family, these persons should be held responsible. Some outlaws at or near Fort Manro (a border area of Punjab and Balochistan) were contacted on behalf of executive of Punjab through some gangsters by the government officials, the federal minister added.
