Firing outside SC Justice Ijazul Ahsan's residence in Lahore

Unidentified gunmen fired at the residence of Supreme Court Justice Ijazul Ahsan in Lahore.

A statement by the apex court stated that an incident of firing took place today at residence of SC Justice Ijazul Ahsan and Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Saqib Nisar arrived at the residence of his fellow judge to oversee the situation.

According to some media reports, there were, in fact, two firing incidents — one late last night and the second early morning today.

Reports also stated that the chief justice has summoned the Punjab police chief.

Justice Ahsan often spends the weekend in Lahore, his hometown, where he, along with the chief justice, presides over several cases related to public welfare issues and other matters at the Lahore registry.

Justice Ahsan is also the monitoring judge of the ongoing corruption cases against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
