Justice Wajih evicted from Punjab to Karachi, Restriction on citizen’s entry in GOR Lahore

Justice (Retd.) Wajihuddin Ahmed who was arrested by the police earlier on 07th December 2007 after his address to the District Bar in Gujrat, was evicted from Punjab and sent to Karachi later in the evening. He was arrested in Gujrat on taking out a rally and later sent by air to Karachi.

Police have erected barricades on all the roads leading to the residence of Justice Shahid Siddiqui who had refused to take oath under Provisional Constitution Order (PCO). Local people are not allowed to use these roads where heavy police contingents have been deployed. The restriction has been imposed in government employees’ residential colony, GOR One on the order of Lahore High Court. The police blocked the roads leading to GOR last night and prevented common citizens from entering the area which houses Chief Minister Secretariat, NAB Office, Chamba House, Chief Minister Monitoring Cell and residences of civil defence and judges. Only those who reside in the GOR are allowed to enter the area.
