ISLAMABAD- The government has filed an appeal in the Lahore High Court against Session Court order to lodge an FIR for Model Town incident.

The appeal was filed by Federal Minister for Information Pervez Rashid today, which states that the verdict by additional session judge was unconstitutional.

The acting chief justice has sent the application to the court of Justice Mehmood Maqbool Bajwa. The Session Court last week had ordered to book 21 people, including PM Nawaz Sharif and Punjab CM Shahbaz Sharif for involvement in Model Town incident.
