Dunia News reported that Lahore High Court (LHC) Justice Muhammad Anwarul Haq refused to hear the case against the eight detained lawyers in connection with his release on Friday.

Lawyers have been arrested for attacking the Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) during violent demonstrations against doctors. The police submitted the report against the lawyers under anti-terrorism acts.

Further details indicate that Justice Muhammad Anwarul Haq has sent the file to the Chief Justice of LHC.

It is pertinent to mention that the Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) on Thursday (yesterday) sent eight arrested lawyers to jail on judicial remand for 14 days.

ATC judge Abdul Qayyum Khan presided over the PIC riot case where scores of arrested lawyers were presented before the court, covering their faces amid tight security.

The accused were produced in the ATC after two FIRs were lodged against them at Shadman police station.

Ghulam Murtaza Chaudhary, Supreme Court Bar's vice-president, Sughra Gulzar, lawyers Nausheen Ambar and Tahir Minhas represented the accused lawyers.
