June 2, 2022 01:38 PM


The lawyers are observing a partial strike on Thursday (today) as they are not appearing in the lower courts of Lahore division against the murder of an advocate in Raiwind, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The Punjab Bar Council (PBC) has demanded that the accused involved in the murder of the lawyer named Ahsan Bhatti should be arrested immediately.

It is to be noted here that Ahsan Bhatti had been shot dead by unidentified motorcycle riders at Chajju Chowk in Raiwind on June 1, 2022 (yesterday) when he was on his way along with his friend Nadeem in a car.

Nadeem was also killed in firing by the accused, whereas, two others sustained critical injuries.

“The deceased lawyer was a nephew of former MPA Abdul Rasheed Bhatti,” police said, adding that old enmity seemed to be the reason behind the dual murder.

Police also claimed to have collected evidence from the site of the incident and stated that the accused would soon be arrested.

The Punjab inspector general of police (IGP) also took notice of the murder of the lawyer and directed Lahore Capital City Police Officer (CCPO) Bilal Siddique Kamyana to ensure early arrest of the accused.
