SC constitutes larger bench for formation of JIT in Model Town case
Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar on Monday ordered the formation of a larger bench to establish a joint investigative team (JIT) to probe the 2014 Model Town incident.

Bisma Amjad, an aggrieved woman of the incident, had filed an application to the chief justice requesting to constitute a new JIT to probe into the killings of innocent workers of the PAT/Idara Minhajul Quran.

The larger bench including, CJP Nisar, Justice Asif Saeed Khosa and three other Supreme Court justices, will also include representatives from other provinces and will begin hearing the case from December 5.

Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Chief Dr Tahirul Qadri who was present in court today said that since the indictment of former IG Sukhera, the case has “gone to zero”.

Qadri requested the formation of another JIT to re-investigate into the case.

The lawyer for Shahbaz Sharif and others, Advocate Azam Nazir Tarar, said that time is required for preparation.

On Saturday, the SC, while hearing the case in the Lahore registry, had issued notices to former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, Opposition Leader in National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif and 137 others nominated in a case lodged by PAT regarding the 2014 Model Town incident.
