Mr. Abid Saqi, Vice-Chairman, Pakistan Bar Council, has strongly condemned the firing on a Lawyers meeting held yesterday at Naushero Feroze-Sindh, in connection with election campaign of Mr. Zia-ul-Hassan Lanjar, Senior Advocate, the sitting Member & former Vice Chairman of the Sindh Bar Council, who is also candidate in forthcoming election of the Sindh Bar Council. Mr. Lanjar, in fact, was the real target of the culprits, but narrow escaped whereas six other persons were seriously injured as a result of firing.

While taking exception to the very unfortunate incident of violence which amply reflects intolerance in the society even in section of the Lawyers, he urged upon the Government for taking immediate necessary action for arresting the culprits and awarding them exemplary punishment.
