The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Thursday ordered the Foreign Office (FO) to submit a new report in regards to the export of falcons to Arab countries.

The instructions were passed during the hearing of a petition by 11-yea-old Ahmed Hassan in the matter related to the export of falcons.

IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah also ordered for the child's letter to be delivered to Prime Minister Imran Khan, which he wrote on the same issue.

The court also asked the FO to submit a reply on the export of 150 rare falcons on Thursday. Expressing displeasure over the foreign secretary's previous reply, the court said response will not be made a part of the record. "Do not bring this on record, submit a new report in this regard."

Hearing of the case has been adjourned till April 7.
