LAHORE: The Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar set a seven-day deadline for the Punjab police to arrest all quacks in the province.

"Punjab police should have taken strict actions against such people," the CJP remarked. "In seven days, all of them should be arrested and a report should be submitted before the court of the record," he added.

Justice Nisar also took notice of the use of luxury cars of minister and judges alike. The top judge also sought a report from provincial governments over the use and provision of luxury cars in each province.

The SC directed all cabinet secretaries and provincial secretaries of the country to submit their reports. The apex court also directed the registrars of all high courts across the country to submit a report in 15 days of the luxury sedans in use of all the justices of these courts.

Will continue taking suo motu notices: CJP

"We should be informed of all the ministers and government officers who drive cars more luxurious than their statuses," the CJP remarked.

The CJP took notice amid the hearing of the alleged corruption in railways case. Khawaja Saad Rafique, Minister of Railways, appeared at the SC's Lahore registry. "Health and education in the country have deteriorated drastically yet officials want to enjoy a ride in their luxury sedans," the CJP remarked.
