Sindh HC issued notice Musharraf over May 12, 2007 Karachi carnage

Islamabad , Fri, 24 Feb 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Feb 24 (ANI): The Sindh High Court (SHC) has issued a notice to former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf over the May 12, 2007 carnage in Karachi.


The request was forwarded to Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry to form a larger bench for the hearing.


The division bench of SHC comprising Justice Shahid Bajood and Justice Nisar Sheikh heard the case today, during which the court ordered to issue a notice to Musharraf as well as to publish the notice in the British newspapers, The Dawn reports.


Justice Shahid Anwar, one of the judges on the bench, said that the case was out of the jurisdiction of the two-member bench.


Hence, analysing the importance of the case, a larger bench should be formed in order to deal the case effectively, he added.


The hearing was adjourned till April 3.


On May 12, 2007, over 50 people were killed and more than 100 vehicles torched during a visit by Chaudhry, who had arrived there to address a lawyers' function in Karachi.


The CJP, who at that time had been made dysfunctional by military dictator Musharraf, was stranded and later returned from Karachi airport due to the fierce gun battles that broke out on the roads towards the airport. (ANI)
