ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has rejected a petition seeking to stop the government from taking action against companies involved in petrol hoarding.
The Chief Justice of the Islamabad High Court ruled on the petition filed by the oil companies, saying that the executive cannot be barred from carrying out an inquiry to find out who is responsible for the shortage of petrol in the country. The court also rejected the petition seeking a stay order on the actions taken against oil companies.
The decision further said that an inquiry into the crisis does not affect the fundamental rights of the petitioners. Moreover, IHC has barred the parties from making unnecessary statements on the petrol crisis inquiry.
