ISLAMABAD : Chief Justice (CJ) Islamabad High Court (IHC) Athar Minallah has disposed of petition in connection with recovery of Mati Ullah Jan with issuing directives.

The CJ IHC remarked during the hearing that it is alarming. It cannot be tolerated. Such treatment cannot be even meted out to common man in federal capital. Whosoever has done it he wants to frighten others. How can it be possible in the presence of police. Federal government should also ensure freedom of expression. Who has dared to do this job in police uniform. Police lights were fitted on all vehicles as per CCTV Footage.

He further observed if there is no rule of law, then there will be nothing here and only there will be anarchy. Terrorism clauses are imposed on journalist on any offence.

During the course of hearing he inquired has police included terror related clauses in FIR.

DIG Syed Waqar ud Din told the court police have registered FIR.

The CJ inquired why terrorism related clauses have not been included in FIR. What impression will go to the people that people are roaming unchecked in police uniform. No one should have courage to use police uniform and vehicle.

Jahangir Jadoon counsel for Mati Ullah Jan told the court police should investigate and tell the court that who was behind this all process.

The CJ remarked this is our bad luck that this process took place in Islamabad. This is test case for police.

The court wrapped up the petition with issuing directives.
