Mr. Abid Saqi, Vice-Chairman and Mr. Azam Nazeer Tarar, Chairman, Executive Committee, Pakistan Bar Council, while fully endorsing the Resolution of the District Bar Association, Narowal passed today, have strongly condemned the local police for having registered false FIRs against Ch. Usman Ashraf, Advocate and his real Brother as well as Rana Shahid Noor, Advocate & Former President, District Bar Association, Narowal and his family members, at the behest of the DPO, Narowal. It is a matter of grave concern that the Police has not only targeted the learned Advocates but also has involved their close relatives in false cases misusing their authority just to satisfy their false ego thus disrespecting the dignity of the legal practitioners in glaring violation of the law.

As the local Police has resorted to such an illegal course of action under guidance and directions of the DPO, Narowal, they have demanded the Inspector General Police, Punjab, for his immediate transfer from Narowal otherwise the legal fraternity will be constrained to organize collective protest of Lawyers against the illegal and motivated pursuits of the Police against Members of the Bar.
