LAHORE Lahore High Court Chief Justice Ijaz Ahmed Chaudhry on Monday dismissed a petition seeking court directions for the police to register a criminal case against Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah for his tirade against former Federal Law Minister Dr Babar Awan. Rana Sana, it may be recalled, had issued a fatwa (decree) for the assassination of Mr Awan. A petition to this regard was filed by advocate Ansar Mehmood, who had enlisted the provincial Law Minister, the provincial as well as federal governments as the respondents. While dismissing the petition after a brief hearing, the court observed that the petitioner did not have locus standi (was not a directly affected party) in this matter. CJ Ijaz Chaudhry further observed: If Babar Awan had any objection to the statement of the respondent and also wanted an FIR to be registered against Sanaullah, he should himself file a petition. The petitioner, however, contended that the statement could have damaging effects on the image of the country if it were to be allowed to go unchecked. He prayed to the court to summon the minister and ask him to explain that under what authority or law he had issued the statement. Meanwhile, a judicial magistrate on Monday sent DSP Riasat Bajwa and three police officials to jail on a 14-day remand for their alleged involvement in a fake encounter which claimed the life of a young man some two weeks ago. Earlier, the Nishtar Colony police produced the accused DSP, SI Muhammad Riaz and constables Abdul Qadir and Asif before the court and informed the judge that investigation against them had been completed. According to the case details, three robbers, including Shahbaz Butt (youth killed in the encounter), had stormed into Makkah Medical Store, situated in Yuhanabad, late last Friday. They looted Rs35,000. During the dacoity, the owner of the store scuffled with Shahbaz, who was left alone as his accomplices fled away. Shahbaz was ultimately overpowered. Later some Muhafiz Squad cops arrived on the spot and took him into custody. He was later killed in a fake encounter near Rohi Nala. The media later highlighted the fake encounter. After some days, DIG Major (retd) Mubashar held an inquiry into the encounter and found it to be fake. Stage artist Anwer Ali granted bail: Stage artist Anwer Ali was on Monday granted pre-arrest bail. Anwer has been accused of attacking famous stuntman Sultan Golden. According to an FIR Golden had registered against the artist, he (Sultan) was alighting from the stairs of his house, in the Golden Plaza, Link (Model Town) Road, on Feb 2, 2011 to offer his Fajr prayer. The moment I came in the open, someone opened indiscriminate fire at me from a vehicle parked outside the plaza. I rushed back to my house to save my life, the FIR stated. Both Sultan and Anwer are locked into litigation over the ownership of a shop. Sultan alleges that Anwer had made fake documents of the shop, situated in his plaza. A case in this regard has also been registered against Anwer Ali. On Monday, Ali filed an application praying the court to grant him a pre-arrest bail. His counsel took the plea that if the artist was arrested, he would lose his image and repute in the eyes of the public. judicial officers: The Chief Justice Lahore High Court on Monday placed services of five judicial officers at the disposal of chief justice Islamabad High Court for their posting in the jurisdiction of that court in Islamabad.
