ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar on Friday took notice of the Bahria Enclave incident in which scores of people suffered injuries last month.

The CJP issued directives to Islamabad chief commissioner and IGP to submit an inquiry report into the incident within 48 hours.

The notice was taken on media reports that two people were killed and dozens others injured when a stage collapsed during an event at the enclave.  According to reports, on the night of April 28 a stage collapsed during the recording of a private TV channel show in Bahria Enclave, a housing society of Bahria Town.

Reports claimed instead of providing medical aid to the victims, the management staff of the event escaped from the site and turned the lights off, making it difficult to carry out rescue activities.

The injured were reportedly not provided proper medical treatment as the capital city administration allegedly seemed reluctant to take any action in accordance with the law.

    The silence of media for many days is a clear proof that how property tycoon using print and electronic media by giving advertisements to them even the FIR was not registered against the organizers. Thanks to social media which played its vital role and the reality unearthed, otherwise all efforts were made to hide the facts. Now it is a good news that the Chief Justice of Pakistan has taken suo motu to provide justice to the people as the authorities were reluctant to take action against Bahria enclave incident.
    THANKS CJPRecommend
