The SC will resume hearing the case regarding implementation of its verdict on Karachi unrest today.
A five-member larger bench of the Supreme Court, headed by Justice Anwer Zaheer Jamali, and including Justice Khilji Arif Hussain, Justice Sarmad Jalal Osmany, Justice Amir Hani Muslim and Justice Gulzar Ahmed, will resume the hearing of the case at SC’s Karachi Registry branch today.
The Home Department will produce to the court a list of culprits released on parole.
During the previous hearing, Justice Sarmad Jalal Usmani observed that it was brought to the notice of the court that 300 to 400 criminals involved in heinous crimes, have been released on parole in an arbitrary and discriminatory manner.
The court, taking judicial notice over the matter, directed the Home Department to file a statement on how many under trial prisoners or convicted prisoners were released on parole in the last five years.
