ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan Wednesday appeared before a bench of the Supreme Court of Pakistan and told the chief justice that “there are no holy cows” in Pakistan.
The prime minister was summoned by the apex court to appear before a three-member bench presided over by the chief justice of Pakistan.
A hearing of the Army Public School massacre suo motu notice had been held in the apex court today in which the chief justice had told the attorney general to summon the prime minister.
The bench had inquired from the attorney general whether the government had taken any steps to hold those who were responsible for the terrorist incident, to account or not.
The prime minister was summoned by the apex court at 11:30am. Appearing before the bench, the premier informed the chief justice about the steps taken by the government to tackle militancy and address the grievances of the parents who lost their children to the TTP militants.
The prime minister assured that the government will fulfil the requirements of justice. The apex court, in turn, directed the prime minister to ensure implementation on its October 20 verdict.
“Hold on for a minute, judge sahab,” the prime minister responded. “Allah will give patience to the parents of the schoolchildren, what more could the government have done apart from giving compensation?”
As per Geo.tv, the prime minister asked the chief justice to form a judicial commission to probe the incident.
